"Open House" on proposed NIT Neighborhood Center P Sep. 8, 2007
An “Open House” will be held to present a proposed NIT Neighborhood Center Plan to the community on 9/11/07 at 7PM as a part of our normal NITNC monthly meeting at the Prince of Peace Lutheran Church. This summer, a Stakeholder Committee made up of NITNC homeowners and representatives from the developers and owners of undeveloped property in our area has been working on a Neighborhood Center Plan for proposed zoning and land use revisions in and around the Sundance Plaza. This effort was requested by the City Council, and a Planning Services representative has been provided to assist us. The objective of this project is limited to identifying anomalies in the land use and zoning designations in and around our Neighborhood Center, and the work product will be a proposal for revisions to the zoning and land use maps for our area. Examples of recommended revisions are parcels with zoning/land use designations that do not match the actual development, parcels with two areas that are zoned differently, and parcels where the zoning and land use are not compatible. This is a limited “clean-up” project with a goal of getting Plan Commission agreement and City Council Approval before the end of the year. It will not address the neighborhood’s desires for contentious zoning revisions that would entail strong, drawn out opposition and lawsuits (i.e. “downzoning” property to a lower density so as to maintain the single-family character of the neighborhood, moderate growth, and slow the deterioration of traffic conditions). Any such action will have to be undertaken as a separate project.
NITNC Monthly Meeting 9/11/07 Sep. 8, 2007

Indian Trail Picnic Saturday 8/4/07 Jul. 28, 2007

This function is being sponsored by www.IndianTrailNews.com which is a new interactive website supported by local businesses. It is focused on the greater Indian Trail area, and provides information of interest to this area. This includes local news items and event notices, phone numbers and Internet links for many local businesses and Spokane City Government departments, classified ads from neighborhood residents, and other helpful information. There is a link to our NITNC website, but NITNC is not affiliated with nor do we financially support www.IndianTrailNews.com due to conflicts arising from our status as a neighborhood government organization. Since this event should be fun for our neighborhood, we thought it was appropriate for us to let you know that you are invited.
