Spokane Raceway Park Public Meeting

sorrry for the late post but jsut found this on another forum

SPOKANE, March 11, 2008 The Spokane County Board of Commissioners (BOCC) is planning a meeting to hear public testimony on what role, if any, the County should play in the future of Spokane Raceway Park (SRP). The meeting will be held Tuesday, March 18 at the Fair and Expo Center. Don Schumacher, a consultant with DSA Sports will present the results of a feasibility study that was conducted at the request of the BOCC. The feasibility study is also available at www.spokanecounty.org/parks.

Spokane Raceway Park is a 198-acre site located on the West Plains of Spokane County. The facility includes a half-mile oval track, a quarter-mile drag strip and a 2.5-mile road course used by sports cars, motorcycles, go-karts and bicycle racing. SRP is presently controlled by court-appointed receiver Barry W. Davidson. The facility, along with 12 other parcels, will be sold to the highest bidders at a public auction on Thursday, April 10, 2008.

The Board of County Commissioners created the "Spokane Raceway Park Technical Advisory Committee" (TAC) in August of 2007. The 15 committee members met several times over a five month period to complete a two-fold task:

- Assist staff in selecting private consultants to examine the viability and economic feasibility of the Spokane Raceway Park.
- Provide background information and technical data to assist the consultants in completion of the feasibility study.

The public is encouraged to attend the meeting and present testimony/comment on the future of Spokane Raceway Park.

Spokane Raceway Park Public Meeting
Tuesday, March 18th 6:00-9:00 p.m.
Fair and Expo Center, Bay 4

Nuts...this is kinda short notice, though I wouldn't have driven that far for the meeting anyway.

Looks like I better get out there to run that track sooner rather than later.
I hope it doesn't get sucked up due to another friggin' subdivision or strip mall.

The county bought the whole track for 3.9 million, but one commissioner that was against buying the track is trying to find some ways to not use it for racing cuz some oil waste was found and it'll be expensive to clean. She's just anti racing from what I've heard.

Supposedly, some of the money from the auction was set aside to clean stuff like that up, so Spokane isn't paying any of the bill for clean up. She doesn't have a leg to stand on, she apparently wants the roads as dangerous as possible from street racing.

Great...
Hopefully she's not in office much longer.

Glad to hear the other commisioners are willing to keep it open.
Did they have any other ideas as to what they want to do with the track?

Even if there were cleanups needed they wouldnt foot a penny of them. They easily qualify for a brownsfield (superfund) cleanup being they are a govt. agency or municipality. Even if not the states DENR has funds available (also through the superfund).
Sounds like that commissioner has no clue and is in cahoots with some developer who's willing to line her pockets which a track wont do
