Governor Updates Guidance to Phase 2
Today, Governor Jay Inslee released an additional guidance document following last week's announcement of updates in Washington's Safe Start phased reopening plan. The memo outlines the updates to gatherings, live entertainment, restaurants and taverns, entertainment and recreational centers, card rooms, movie theaters, and weddings and funerals and builds upon guidance released last week. 
Survey Results: CARES Act Funding Priorities
Over the last week, we asked citizens to prioritize CARES Act Funding for COVID-19 response and recovery. Thank you to the nearly 3,300 respondents who weighed in and provided feedback. Of the five focused categories, there was consistent and balanced importance. This information helps leadership make decisions and direct much needed assistance to qualified programs. If your organization is interested in funding, visit the CARES Act Funding page .

Behavioral Health Unit Making a Difference
One out of four of all calls police respond to involves someone suffering from a mental health problem. In April, 70 percent of calls were resolved without jail, a hospital or use of force. See firsthand how the partnership with Frontier Behavioral Health clinicians and Spokane Police Department officers is positively impacting calls that involve a mental health crisis.
Proposal to Add Bike Lanes on Boone Ave.
The City of Spokane is proposing a series of amendments to the Comprehensive Plan including changes to the Bicycle Master Plan, arterial street designation map and text related to railroad crossings. We invite you to attend our virtual open house this Thursday at 4:30 p.m.  There will be a presentation by City Planners, followed by a question and answer session.
Getting Through the City
On Monday, Aug. 3, the City of Spokane Street Department will begin work on a project to repair Wall Street between Garland and Wellesley avenues. The work will cause backups and delays, so motorists are asked to detour to Monroe or Division streets during the two-week project.

Work on Wall Street is part of slate of street maintenance repair projects that the Street Department will complete this summer. Street crews are scheduled to complete grind and overlay work on 15 lanes miles of streets.

This week, crews are completing work on Wellesley between Pittsburg and Haven.

Neighborhood Graffiti Clean-Up
A graffiti clean-up event is being hosted by the City of Spokane's Code Enforcement Department to clean and paint over graffiti on businesses and various locations within the downtown city core. Join the effort Tuesday, August 11 at 3:00 p.m. Volunteers for this event will be broken out into two groups of five volunteers and will be required to provide and wear face masks themselves. Sign up today!
