Southeast Sports Complex Renovation Update at SNC Meeting

The Parks Department will give a presentation to the Southgate Neighborhood Council next week about the proposed renovation to the Southeast Sports Complex and seek input on the design theme of the playground and park overall.

The most recent version of the Southeast Sports Complex plan. Phase 1 focuses on the playground area.

A copy of the presentation the Parks Department gave to the Spokane Design Review Board last week explaining the scope of the project and showing their initial ideas can be seen here.

Design Review of Southeast Sports Complex Renovation

On Wednesday, August 22nd, the Spokane Design Review Board will hold a Collaborative Workshop to review the plans for Phase I of the renovations of the Southeast Sports Complex. The meeting is at 5:30pm in the Council Briefing Center at City Hall.

The Parks Department is acting on the Master Plan developed a couple years ago and includes new amenities like a splash pad, updated playground, and amphitheater/performance space. It will also coordinate with the improvements being installed as part of the KXLY development. There are some slight changes from the earlier plan, the softball fields have mostly been removed and the trail component is better defined.

You can read the submittal from the Parks Department and the report developed by City staff about the design here. Public comments will be taken in person at the Design Review Board meeting and can also be submitted to City staff Dean Gunderson or DRB Community Assembly Liaison Kathy Lang.

Comment Period for Garden District PUD

**UPDATE**

Here are the comments SNC submitted to the City on the current proposal. We will keep you updated on their response and any upcoming additional comment periods.


They City is taking comments on the Garden District PUD, including the Crestline Connection until Tuesday, July 31st.

The City has uploaded all of the relevant documents for the public’s review on this website: https://my.spokanecity.org/projects/garden-district-pud/

You can see the proposed site plan (without the connector), review the SEPA report, and in a separate document see the traffic impacts in the Trip Generation Letter (though the report shows the impacts with the connector, not the revised plan without it).

This is the revised site plan showing no connection of Crestline to Southeast Blvd.

This is the Agency and Department Comment Period. There will be additional chances to comment during the public comment period, during the Hearing Examiner review of the PUD application, and at the Plan Commission and City Council when they consider the recently added Comp Plan Amendment to remove the Crestline connector from the City’s Arterial Street Map.

You can send your comments this round to Tami Palmquist at the City’s Planning Department: tpalmquist@spokanecity.org. They need to be in by 5pm on Tuesday, July 31st.
