New Public Plaza by Spokane City Hall
Here’s a heads up on downtown construction and road closures that was issued by City Hall on Friday:
A new public plaza is planned in the parking lot north of City Hall that will include seating and gathering space for events. In appreciation of the 125-year partnership between WWP/Avista and the people of Spokane, the newly developed City Hall Plaza will be a gift from Avista Corp. shareholders to the City of Spokane.
Work on City Hall Plaza will begin on Tuesday, July 23. The north parking lot will close permanently following the City Council meeting on Monday, July 22. Three handicapped spots will be moved to the lot on the southwest side of City Hall.
Improvements will also be made to Post Street, which will close for several weeks beginning in mid-September. The Post Street project will be finished in late fall.
Current parking options during construction:
- Street parking will be available before work begins on Post Street and after it is finished.
- River Park Square parking garage with skywalk accessibility to City Hall.
More information on the Huntington Park improvement is given in this Spokesman-Review story. Avista also blogged about it here.
