A Resolution To The City of Spokane From The North Indian Trail Neighborhood Council Recommending Rejection of Proposed Land Use Change Application City File Z1000056 COMP

This concerns the proposed change in Land Use on Parcel # 26166.0054 at the corner of N Indian Trail Road and Blackfoot from Neighborhood Mini-Center/Conservation Open Space to General Commercial.

We recommend that this application be rejected due to the unacceptable number of errors and falsehoods it contains, and due to the lack of justification for the proposed upgrade. Our objections are documented in detail in a large number of written Comments that have been submitted to the City Staff. This Application is fatally flawed and should be rejected. The key justifications cited for the proposed change are based on factual errors and falsehoods and are invalid. There is no convincing justification for the proposed change.

We believe the Neighborhood Mini-Center/Conservation Open Space Land Use originally established in the Spokane City Comprehensive Plan adopted 5/21/01 is still the proper use of this land. We believe that most, if not all, of the additional uses that would be allowed by a change to General Commercial are inappropriate and unacceptable and oppose such a change.
Therefore, be it resolved by the North Indian Trail Council to recommend to the City of Spokane to reject this application.

Adopted by a vote of _34__ to _0__on this 12th day of April, 2011.
