SPOKANE, Wash. — The city of Spokane is informing the community of efforts to decrease displacement in the South Logan neighborhood and wants the community to provide input.

Over the past several years, the city has invested in identifying strategies to better serve the residents of South Logan and combat issues that cause displacement as the community continues to grow. The South Logan Transit-Oriented Development Project, or TOD, plans for more livability and connectivity in the neighborhood for businesses and residents. This is part of the city’s efforts for expanding housing options, affordability, and mixed-use development.

According to the Spokane Housing Action Plan, adopted by the city in 2021, the causes of displacement can be physical, economic, or cultural, often intertwined. Moving forward, the city wants to mitigate those impacts.

The city is looking at possible strategies such as adjusting development codes, public-private partnerships for housing needs, supportive resources for tenants and businesses, and ongoing community engagement.
