Crosswalks are part of our urban landscape and a vital piece of pedestrian and public safety infrastructure. As any of us who have tried to navigate Spokane streets know, crosswalks can be done poorly or with a lot of intention. CM Candace Mumm, as one of her first efforts in office, took it upon herself to work with city staff and citizens to develop a new policy that encourages various types of crosswalks throughout the city, as well as mandates crosswalks be implemented in key mixed-use, dense corridors and city centers as these corridors develop in the future. Council passed this ordinance on a 5-1 vote (Fagan opposed). Congrats, CM Mumm, for putting the time and effort to improve the safety and vitality of our neighborhoods and business districts!
