Attend the workshop on Tuesday, July 25

Members of the community are invited to learn more about “placemaking,” and upcoming community engagement opportunities along the North Spokane Corridor (NSC) route by attending a community workshop on Tuesday, July 25. Placemaking is a multi-faceted approach to the planning, design and management of public spaces.

The Washington State Department of Transportation, Eastern Washington University (EWU), and the City of Spokane will host the workshop to begin formulating the process for citizen collaboration in designing the southern five miles of the North Spokane Corridor. The workshop will be an interactive session with presentations by EWU Planning, City of Spokane, and WSDOT to facilitate the beginning of the engagement plan and participation in placemaking.

Placemaking capitalizes on a local community's assets, inspiration, and potential, with the intention of creating inviting public spaces that promote people's health, public safety, and economic vitality.  Ongoing community engagement will be the cornerstone of the placemaking planning and design effort.
