Vacant City, Sprawling County Why we don’t need to and absolutely should not expand our urban growth area in pictures!
This is our 90 square mile Urban Growth Area
Situation According to a recent Spokesman Review article, Spokane County Commissioners are still determined to expand the Urban Growth Area. They just completed additional environmental review of a brand new alternative which incorporates every single property owner requested piece of land into the Urban Growth Area. A huge expansion, despite the conclusions of the multi- jurisdictional technical advisory committee that recommended against a net expansion and a similar recommendation by the City of Spokane Plan Commission.
