The completed Emerson-Garfield Neighborhood Plan was unveiled to the entire neighborhood at a public presentation on June 12, 2014.
In addition to planning stakeholders and residents, representatives from the City, the STA and the neighborhood business community were in attendance.
The plan has since been presented to relevant planning and land use committees, where it has received overwhelmingly positive feedback on its scope, ambition and equity. On July 9, the Spokane Plan Commission unanimously (6-0) voted to recommend adoption of the plan by resolution to the City Council.
On July 28, the Spokane City Council voted unanimously (6-0) in favor of adopting the Emerson-Garfield Neighborhood Plan by resolution. This is a big achievement, and it means the plan stands an even better chance of having its most salient points incorporated into Spokane’s long-term Comprehensive Plan.
We encourage you to read the plan, as it lays out a vision that befits Emerson-Garfield as a vibrant residential neighborhood with a strong central business corridor. Download it here as a PDF.
