About City of Spokane Valley

Spokane Valley sits in the heart of the Spokane River Valley. A city of nearly 100,000 population, its residents enjoy scenic parks and trails, quality neighborhoods, great schools, affordable housing, a robust retail center and overall vibrant economy. 

Spokane Valley is home to a mix of industry, including state-of-the-art manufacturing and wholesale distribution companies, developing aerospace and tech sectors; growing healthcare and financial services; and small niche businesses.  The city prides itself on a streamlined permitting process that is flexible and predictable, adopting a 10-business day target review date for all commercial projects.

Getting products to market is easy in Spokane Valley. Moving freight is not a problem with Interstate 90 and two class I railroads, Union Pacific and BNSF, passing through the city. The official average commute time for workers is a 20.5 minutes, but realistically you can be nearly anywhere in the city within 15 minutes. Combined with a healthy job market and nearby University District for post-graduate training, many skilled employees choose to live in Spokane Valley. 

It’s not all work in Spokane Valley. Two event centers – CenterPlace Regional Event Center and the Fair & Expo Center – host a variety of family-friendly entertainment. The Spokane Indians minor league baseball team plays at Avista Stadium. Residents can walk or bicycle the scenic Appleway or Centennial Trails; hike Dishman Hills or Mirabeau Park; or kayak and fish the Spokane River. In addition, new restaurants, breweries, vintage stores and specialty shops are expanding into city neighborhoods, creating opportunities for fun with family and friends.
