Downtown is the city and region’s center, home to the largest employment area and assets such as Riverfront Park, the financial district, major retail, historic urban core, and portions of the growing university and medical districts. With the area boasting millions in recent investments and new prospects for residents, shopping, and entertainment, the City of Spokane is working with Downtown Spokane Partnership and its consultant, Framework, in a public engagement process that will update the City’s existing Downtown plan. The effort will join the community’s vision to guide development, design, and regulatory recommendations for the future with major new efforts like the Central City Line.
