The Audubon·Downriver Neighborhood Council (ADNC) meets on the third Thursday of each month (except for December, July and August). Neighborhood council projects include park improvements, traffic calming, public safety, and community events.  Residents, property owners and business owners who attend 2 or more meetings in 12 consecutive months become voting members.  Please join us! Meetings begin at 7 PM in the Library at Finch Elementary School, 3717 N. Milton Street.  Records of past meetings are posted here. Check the calendar for meeting dates and other events.

Neighborhood Newsletter

In the Fall of 2020, the ADNC began publishing a monthly newsletter to keep everyone informed of council and neighborhood issues and activities during the time that we were unable to meet in person. Click on the Documents tab to view past editions of the newsletter.

Shadle Area Neighborhood Plan

Northwest and Audubon-Downriver neighborhoods worked with city planning staff and a private consultant to create a 20 year vision for the area around the Shadle shopping center. The Shadle Area Neighborhood Plan was adopted by City Council in November, 2019. Follow this link to review the final plan.

Concerts Under the Pines

The Audubon-Downriver Neighborhood Council will host two evening concerts in Audubon Park this summer. On July 15th, the Lilac City Community Band will perform. On July 22nd, Moops will perform. The concerts start at 6:30 and end at 8:30. The family friendly concerts are an annual event and provide an opportunity for residents to gather in Audubon Park for an evening of fun and entertainment.

Horses in the Park

Audubon Downriver Neighborhood Council recently donated a flag to the COPS Mounted Patrol drill team. Jeff Stevens, ADNC vice chair, presented the flag to Traci Ponto, Neighborhood Resource Officer from COPS West. Look for the drill team at parades, rodeos, concerts and other events.

Northwest Boulevard Pedestrian Crossing

The Audubon-Downriver Neighborhood Council received traffic calming funds to fund the construction of a pedestrian crossing at the intersection of Northwest Boulevard and Alice Street. The marked crossing includes a safety island in the center of the Boulevard to enhance the safety of the crossing.

Information Kiosk in Audubon Park

The Audubon-Downriver Neighborhood Council received funds from the Spokane Parks Foundation to design and construct an information kiosk near the parking lot in Audubon Park. Signage on the kiosk describes the history of the park, a guided walking tour of the tree species in the park, a lost and found bin, a place for residents to post community messages and a map of the surrounding neighborhood.
