Logan Neighborhood Meeting
Following up on the neighborhood greenway presentations and planning started at the Logan Neighborhood Council meetings last autumn, the LNC is holding a topic-specific meeting to discuss transportation issues in the Logan area, with a special focus on issues relating to walking, cycling, traffic safety, and traffic calming. They will continue the discussion about neighborhood greenway planning and consider projects we want to submit for the city’s traffic calming program. Time permitting, they will also kick off a discussion about other transportation-related issues in the Logan neighborhood, such as Safe Routes to Schools, difficult intersections, right-sizing arterial streets, and whatever else is currently impacting the health and accessibility of people who live, work, learn, play, and shop in the neighborhood.

All About Greenways
Spokane is getting its first neighborhood greenway on N Cincinnati Ave, and is currently planning greenways in neighborhoods around the city. But what exactly are greenways, why are we building them, and what effect will they have on Spokane’s transportation network?
This educational event is open to all members of the public who want to learn more about neighborhood greenways, especially members of neighborhood councils that are interested in or currently pursuing the creation of greenways in their own neighborhoods. The presentation will include “Part One: Intro to Greenways,” “Part Two: Planning a Greenway Network,” and a brand-new “Part Three: Including Greenways in Your 2020 Traffic Calming Application.”
Presentation content includes:
- What exactly greenways are and why we’re building them
- Examples of greenway networks in other cities
- The potential benefits greenway network can provide for improved cycling, walking, access to bus stops, access for people with mobility impairments, and overall traffic calming and safety
- The pros and cons of greenways vs other types of cycling infrastructure
- Qualitative and quantitative traits of healthy vs unhealthy greenways
Greenway design best practices (and mistakes to avoid)
- How neighborhood councils can get greenways built (and built sooner) in their neighborhood
