Mayor Condon Releases 100 Day Action Plan As Part Of Inaugural Address

SPOKANE, Wash. - In his Inaugural Address Spokane Mayor David Condon detailed a series of actions that the City will complete during his first 100 days in office. 

"My 100-Day Action Plan will lay the groundwork for a successful first year of office and a successful four-year term," says Mayor Condon.  "With this plan, we will express a new direction for the City, one focused providing effective and affordable services."

The Mayor delivered his Inaugural Address to about 400 people in the ballroom at the Red Lion Inn at the Park as part of a morning membership meeting of Greater Spokane Incorporated.  The address also was shown live on CityCable 5, the City of Spokane's government-access cable station, with technical assistance from KHQ-TV and Comcast Cable.

His remarks center around his 100-Day Action Plan, which prioritizes five areas that are consistent with the work of the Mayor's Transition Committee.  The areas include:

  • Public Safety:  Restoring public trust in law enforcement and enhance community health and safety.
  • Jobs & Economic Growth:  Creating an atmosphere to attract and retain jobs.
  • Budget:  Promoting long-term fiscal health without undue burden on citizens.
  • Infrastructure:  Maintaining critical public infrastructure at an affordable price.
  • Quality of Life:  Engaging citizens and improving the quality and character of our community.

The Mayor stressed that his top priority remains rebuilding public trust and confidence in the Spokane Police Department.  A separate, more detailed police action plan will be released next week, the Mayor says.

Among other things, the 100-Day Action Plan includes:

  • Training for officers and firefighters to better serve vulnerable populations, including the mentally ill.
  • Improvements in property crimes investigation.
  • Proposing a new water rate structure and working with the Council to get the rates adopted.
  • Advancements in the City's commercial permitting process.
  • Development of a 2013 City Budget forecast.
  • Enhancing communications with citizens.

A total of 21 action items are identified in the plan, and the Mayor notes that the City also will begin work on longer-term projects during this time.  The plan is attached.

Citizens can track the City's progress on the items on the City's web site at www.spokanecity.org/government/mayor/OneHundredDay.
