Your City at Work
The City of Spokane Office of Neighborhood Services is working hard to adjust the programs that serve our residents. Here is an update:

Neighborhood Clean-Up Program
We are excited to announce a special cleanup program for this unusual year. The City has rallied around the need for clean-up in our neighborhoods. Collectively, City departments have worked together to develop a program that helps our community clean up without exposing neighbors to unnecessary risk. Dump passes will be distributed in a tiered delivery system.

This system will prioritize assistance to low-income residential areas before moving to residences in moderate-high income brackets. Find out what Neighborhood Council you belong to and get involved. Questions? Ask Gabby Ryan.

Community Engagement Grant
The Community Engagement Grant program deadline is extended; applications are now due by 11 p.m. on Sunday, June 21. The program will move ahead, as usual, regarding printed materials. Newsletters or postcards may be a tool to keep neighborhoods engaged. You may want to consider using CE funds to pay musicians to hold a Facebook Live streamed concert from a local business or offer a drive-in movie as options. Contact Annie Deasy with any questions

Traffic Calming/School Radar
The Traffic Calming and School Radar/Safety program deadline is extended; applications are now due by 11 p.m. on Sunday, June 21. Contact Annica Eagle with any questions.

Mobile Speed Feedback
The Mobile Speed Feedback request forms are still due Friday, May 22. If your neighborhood has already submitted a request form but would like to alter or change the requests due to the changing nature of traffic flow and school closures, please contact Annica Eagle.
Centennial Trail Extension
The City of Spokane wants to hear from you! The City has been working on a proposed project to complete a missing section of the Centennial Trail in the West Central neighborhood, and City leaders want to know what you think about the project and how you use the Centennial Trail.

The Centennial Trail project in West Central is intended to provide a needed link between already completed sections of the trail, connecting the trail at Boone Avenue and Summit Boulevard to the trail at Pettet Drive and West Point Road. It would replace crumbling sidewalks and curbing in the neighborhood and enhance connectivity for pedestrians and bicyclists to bus stops, parks, schools, and the West Central Community Center.

Let us know what you think! This survey for your feedback is open until 5 p.m. on Friday, May 15.
