Throwback Thursday: New Mayor’s Rushed LED Initiative Misleading for Spokane, Washington [The GRID]

New Mayor’s Rushed LED Initiative
Misleading for Spokane, Washington

LED Initiative Misleading

This article discusses the contradiction of Mayor Condon’s First 100-days plan towards more commercial and industrial development through a Certified Sites program. However, with all the support Spokane gives to infill development downtown, this bribery for big-box developers is something to frown upon.

This was the first article I wrote for The GRID. Please make any comments on The GRID, not here! It’ll make me look good to my boss!

I could have, and did eventually, write pages and pages on this bit of a little-known controversy. I have since also performed the GIS analysis supporting my theories and may end up submitting my extended work on this topic to The Inlander, Spokane and its hinterland’s alternative periodical, for publishing.

This was originally posted on Global Site Plans‘ blog, The GRID, May 23rd, 2012.
