NEXT MEETING: October 16th 2019

Many of you have wondered how the county planning department responded to our request for an "ADMINISTRATIVE DETERMINATION" of the zoning as it relates to the proposed sports complex. Basically we have asked the planning department to justify how this regional sports complex can be called a community recreational facility.  To read the letter click on this link - REQUEST. The short answer is the County hasn't responded to date. We will discuss more on this at this months meeting.

On a separate note a public workshop has been scheduled to consider the Draft Spokane County Comprehensive Plan Update and to provide opportunity for agencies and the public to provide comment on the proposal. The Spokane County Comprehensive Plan Update is a periodic review of plans and development regulations. The current update in not a major update of the plan, but generally reflects implementation of revisions to state laws, corrections to inconsistencies in the plan and changes to administrative processes.
 
The workshop will be held on September 26, 2019 in the Commissioner’s Hearing Room, lower level, Public Works Building located at 1026 W. Broadway Avenue, Spokane, WA. The workshop will begin at 9:00 a.m. or as soon as possible thereafter and concluding with the last speaker or at 4:00 P.M., whichever comes first. If necessary, the workshop may be continued. For those of you that are interested in attending the workshop and testifying we will discuss the comprehensive plan and how it relates to Glenrose at our monthly meeting. To read the planning report for the proposal click on this link - SPOKANE COUNTY COMPREHENSIVE PLAN UPDATE. If you are unable to attend our monthly meeting and/or would like more information requests for information should be directed to Steve Davenport, AICP, Spokane County Department of Building and Planning, 1026 W Broadway Ave., Spokane, WA. 99260 (509) 477-7221.

Spokane County has asked us if we would like to beautify the new Glenrose Round-A-Bout. Do you have any ideas?
How would you like to welcome folks to Glenrose?
Come to the meeting and help us design the center of the new round-a-bout.
Read on to learn the parameters we must work with.
In the line drawing above zones A, B, & C correspond to the inner circle in the picture above.

Guidelines for Landscaping Center of Roundabout .

Zone A  
This zone is outside the Clear Zone and outside the Sight Distance Zone.
Signs with very abbreviated wording. 
Statues.  Nothing lifelike that could cause drivers to swerve at night. 
Trees/Plants.  Nothing that would get too big.  Limbs shall not encroach on sight lines.

 In Zone B

Larger Rocks
Lighting

Zone B
Sight Distance Zone.  Keep sight lines open between 1 foot from ground and 7 feet from ground.  The landscaping should keep these sight lines without the need for maintenance (i.e. constant trimming).
Landscape rock
Decorative curbing
Plants.  Not recommended in Zone C
Small boulders.  Not recommended in Zone C

Zone C
Clear Zone.  Everything in the zone shall be crashworthy.  This area will be the most likely to sustain damage from larger vehicles mounting the center curbing on occasion.  Landscaping would need to be durable.
