South Hill Coalition Plans For The Future

SPOKANE, Wash. - Residents of Spokane's South Hill began a process Thursday night to help plan what their neighborhoods will look like in the next two decades.

Meeting at Sacajawea Middle School, South Hill homeowners and business owners gathered to discuss issues and problems the different neighborhoods are dealing with and will be facing in the coming years.

Those neighborhoods consist of Cliff Cannon, Comstock, Lincoln Heights, Rockwood and Manito-Cannon Hill.

In 2007 the city of Spokane allocated $550,000 dollars between its 26 neighborhoods to commission studies that reflect resident voices regarding future development.

It's the beginning of a two-year planning process that will map out where planning dollars should be spent, as well as what they should be spent on.  

After meeting separately Wednesday night, the five South Hill neighborhoods came together Thursday night as part of the South Hill coalition, identifying the common problems each one is seeing.

The main issues that kept coming up were fairly typical: traffic, crime, accessibility and local business.

This summer the group will hire a consultant with the money they were given five years ago to present their findings to the city.

They hope to incorporate their plans into the city's comprehensive plan, which is up for review in 2015.
