Mission Statement: To protect and preserve the East Central Neighborhood and its quality of life through planning, visionary leadership, accountability, and neighborhood volunteers working with City of Spokane departments, agencies, and neighbors for the benefit of current and future residents with the aid and assistance of Community Development Grants and other funding sources.
Common Neighborhood Topics:
- Crime – The issues of crime like, graffiti, burglary or car prowling is addressed at the neighborhood council meetings. A member of the Spokane Police Department is usually on hand to describe current crime trends, prevention methods, and resources.
- Community Development – East Central is a Housing and Urban Development (HUD) eligible neighborhood. This means that the neighborhood receives federal funding each year for capital improvements such as, sidewalks, home rehabilitation and community centers to name a few when neighborhoods utilize Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) dollars.
- Traffic – The East Central Neighborhood has a wide range of streets, from residential to the freeway that bisects the neighborhood. The good news is that even with so much diversity in street types you can do something to stop dangerous or inconsiderate drivers. Every year the East Central Neighborhood can submit two applications for a traffic calming measure to be installed in the neighborhood. Anything from speed-limit signs to traffic circles.
- Code Enforcement – Code Enforcement is the primary contact for land use complaints, enforcing City health, safety codes and ordinances. Code Enforcement helps the public understand their rights and obligations and work closely with other government agencies to promote community goals; and acts as a liaison with community members on programs and policies to ensure stable improvement to quality of life and neighborhoods.
