In February 1999, the City of Spokane adopted the Plan for a New Downtown as part of its Comprehensive Plan. Since the creation of the plan, over $4 billion have been invested in the downtown core. The plan provides design guidelines, zoning regulations and targeted projects for City staff, developers, and business leaders alike to follow in order to ensure vibrant, safe and proactive measures.
Downtown Plan Update
The Downtown Plan Update was adopted into the City of Spokane Comprehensive Plan on December 22, 2008. The plan update is crafted to fully integrate visions, urban planning, design guidelines and regulatory recommendation with a comprehensive public participation and outreach process.
