New Historic Preservation and Demolition Ordinance Changes

The City has issued a Determination of Non-Significance (DNS) for their new update to the City’s historic preservation and demolition ordinances. The changes would strengthen the historic preservation rules in Spokane to assure demolished historic structures would be replaced with ones that reflect the character of the remaining neighborhood. You can read more on the City of Spokane’s website.

The DNS means that there are likely no major environmental impacts to updating this ordinance. However, once you read it, this determination can be appealed and comments submitted to the City until 5:00pm on Thursday, January 25th. Send comments and questions about appealing to Tirrell Black at the City Planning Department.
