The study began by connecting with the local jurisdictional partners to form a “Technical Advisory Team” for the study. The technical advisory team is a multidisciplinary team that includes representatives from the City of Airway Heights, City of Spokane, Spokane County, Kalispel Tribe, Spokane Tribe, Fairchild Air Force Base, Spokane Transit Authority, Spokane International Airport, the West Plains Area Public Development Authority, West Plains Chamber of Commerce, WSDOT and others. Collaboratively, the technical team guides a transparent process that ensures inclusive participation and informed outcomes.
The West Plains community will be engaged throughout the study. In 2019 we connected with the community at the following “listening posts” and events:
- Medical Lake Founders Day
- Sunday Fest at Northern Quest Resort & Casino
- Airway Heights Festival
- Fairchild Air force Base
- Yokes Grocery Store
- Smart Commute NW Employee Transportation Coordinators Luncheon (September 2019)
- Growth Management Act (GMA) Steering Committee of Elected Official Meeting (September 2019)
During the above engagement we shared information and received input on opportunities to address the multimodal transportation system in West Plains Sub-Area. The community has also provided input via three surveys.
