The Latah Valley moratorium on major development has been in place nearly 2 months now. As part of adopting the moratorium the city council is required to hold a public meeting. That meeting is taking place on Monday, November 7th at City Hall. You are the reason the moratorium was adopted and we need you now to show your support for the substantive actions that need to come out of putting a pause on major development in our valley.
SAVE THE DATE SUPPORTING THE LATAH VALLEY MORATORIUM MONDAY, NOVEMBER 7TH @ 6PM SPOKANE CITY HALL
LET'S SHOW NUMBERS It's important that the city council and the city itself sees that residents of the Latah Valley are serious about protecting Latah Valley. Pencil November 7th into your calendar and show up to City Hall to show your support for the adoption of the moratorium and the substantive, positive actions that should come out of freezing development here.
LET'S SPEAK UP The refrain leading up to the adoption of the moratorium was "Infrastructure Before Development". The reasoning for that was three fold: We need better comprehensive planning before any development can proceed We need infrastructure improvements first and a better sense of who is paying for it - taxpayers, developers, government? We need to improve the development approval process for Latah Valley and the rest of Spokane During the city council meeting on November 7th each of us is allowed to provide testimony on the moratorium. CALV will be circulating talking points next week but the basic message is, "Thank you for the moratorium and let's make it count!"
It was our collective voice that got the moratorium put in place and it's going to take our collective voice to make sure that real action comes out of the moratorium period.
