  • Parks and streets measures on November ballot

    The streets and Riverfront Park plan is on the November Ballot. If approved, current streets and park funding would remain in place, giving the city $60 million to improve Riverfront Park and $25 million to spend on upgrades to our streets.

    The master plan for Riverfront Park includes a promenade on Howard Street, a new and improved carrousel, moving the ice rink to the edge of the park, and creating a destination playground.

    KXLY spoke to residents in favor of improving the park. They say they'd like to see Riverfront Park get this makeover, to help keep Spokane's downtown vibrant and thriving.

    "I don't think there's anything wrong with the park," explained Spokane resident Theo Anderson. "I like the garbage goat and the sculptures of the runners. It's a really nice park, but I think it's good to keep the momentum going and make it better."

    Resident Taylor Main agreed, saying, "I think Spokane is on their way to becoming a bigger city, so the more you can attract people downtown with entertainment with better parks is better for Spokane."

    The Spokane City Council voted unanimously over the summer to allow the two measures to go to a vote.

    Election day is November 4th.
