Doug and Jonathan,
We are scheduled for Browne’s Addition plowing on Tuesday and Wednesday. We’ll do north-south streets on Tuesday and east-west streets on Wednesday. Cars will need to be moved to accommodate the plows or they will be towed.
I will send out the information to the media in the next few minutes. We’ll post to the web, tweet, email out to everyone who has an email on file with us, and add to Metroguide on CityCable 5, etc.
Of course, whatever you can do on your ends will be very helpful, too.

Subject: Updated snow removal info from City of Spokane - 10:30 a.m.
I've updated our release from this morning. We will start in residential plow routes 22, 23, and 24 at about noon. These areas typically don't have a lot of people who park on the street so the plows shouldn't have trouble. Check out the map at http://www.spokanestreetdepartment.org/documents/snowroutemap.pdf to see the route numbers. We should have 40 pieces of equipment out on the streets by around noon, including plows, graders, and de-icers.
Also, Street Department officials are reminding people not to blow or shovel snow into the street. Please shovel or blow your snow into your yards. That helps minimize the snow that the plows will push onto sidewalks or the end of driveways.
Thanks to all for your help in getting the word out.

- Installing the plow blades on the City’s dump trucks.
- Purchasing de-icer and sand.
- Stocking up on tire chains, shovels, and other winter equipment.
- Ensuring contracts are in place with private contractors who would supplement City snow removal crews during Stage 2 snow emergencies.
- Changing our employee schedules in the Street Department to provide 20-hour-a-day coverage.
- Beginning 24-7 monitoring of weather conditions.
- Make sure they have adequate snow supplies at home—shovels, along with sand or de-icer are a good start.
- Ensure that vehicles are equipped for snow. Tires should be aggressive enough for winter weather and throw a few basic supplies in the trunk, including a blanket, a shovel, and some traction sand.
- Check with neighbors who might need assistance keeping their driveways and sidewalks clear of snow and ice. Offer to help them throughout the winter season.
- Familiarize themselves with the parking restrictions during snow emergencies. Those who park on an arterial or fixed STA bus route must move their cars within 6 hours of a declared Stage 1 snow emergency. During a Stage 2 snow emergency which includes a full-City plow, residents need to park on the even side of the street for the 2010-11 winter in residential areas until the plows complete their work.

This event is coordinated annually by Friends of the Falls–which works to engage people directly with the Spokane River so they will love it and work to keep it clean, safe and accessible for generations to come–with the assistance of dozens of partner organizations.
Online registration is open now at www.friendsofthefalls.org. Please register in advance but Browns Addition walk-in registrants are welcome the day of the event.
In 2009 750+ people (including Browns Addition residents), collected over eight tons of trash, over two tons of it recycled.
I hope Browns Addition residents make a strong showing!

While there are some important issues before the neighborhood, we also want to take this opportunity to look at how we communicate in the 'hood. We have many different and poorly integrated methods (direct mail, flyers, the Blog, a Facebook page), but not a clear model for how we let folks know what is going on. This discussion leads as well to our very organizational structure: is the chair, vice chair, etc. still the way a neighborhood should be organized in 2010, or is there a more flattened and structure that would do us well?
The point is that the neighborhood doesn't exist for the Neighborhood Council, but the other way around. Maybe we can do things better and more responsively.
come and offer some ideas and suggestions for how we can be a more communicative neighborhood.
