Four Saturday workshops in February, March and April help plan public facilities

SPOKANE – There are more opportunities to help plan the community spaces along the North Spokane Corridor. A series of "charrettes" begin in late February where citizens can contribute ideas on public places and amenities along the NSC route and adjacent Children of the Sun Trail.

A charrette is an inclusive and collaborative workshop to help identify relevant issues and potential solutions for projects with community-wide significance. The charrette process welcomes citizens' concepts for preserving, enhancing and creating public spaces to promote health, happiness and well-being.

Eastern Washington University, the City of Spokane and the Washington State Department of Transportation teamed up to gather citizen ideas about what the community could look like along the new North Spokane Corridor multi-modal transportation facility.
