Welcome to the Friends of the Little Spokane River Valley.
To Residents in the Little Spokane River Valley:
During this time of Coronavirus and Social Distancing, the community trail system along the Little Spokane River has been a blessing to get fresh air and enjoy nature. The use of the trail has increased dramatically over the past few weeks. As many of you know, the Friends of the Little Spokane River Valley has plans to build a new section of trail between Midway Road and Colbert Road. This new trail section would run along the west side of Little Spokane River Drive and connect two sections of the existing trail system creating a large loop. Building the new trail section would create needed construction jobs and improve our community. The FLSRV has already invested in a survey and finished design drawings. This is truly a “Shovel Ready Project”.
Please click on the link below and tell our County Commissioners that you would like to have a new trail section built along the Little Spokane River.
This would put the CARES Act Funds to good use in our community.

CARES Act funding in Spokane County
The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act was passed by Congress with overwhelming, bipartisan support and signed into law by the President on March 27th, 2020. This over $2 trillion economic relief package provides fast and direct economic assistance for American workers, families, and small businesses, and preserves jobs for our American industries.
In Spokane County, the community is projected to receive approximately $90 million in relief revenue to support economic recovery. Spokane County commissioners want to hear from local residents and businesses on how they believe the money could best be spent to improve our community.
On the link below, please provide contact information and a brief description of your recommendation on how and where you believe CARES Act funding should be spent in Spokane County.
Due to activity restrictions imposed by COVID-19, the April 18th FLSRV Spring Trail Clean-up has been canceled. The issue will be revisited in the fall. In the meantime, please do your part to keep our trail clean.
In these very difficult times, the trail is getting even more use than usual. In appreciation for all that FLSRV has done and is doing to extend our trail system, please consider giving an additional donation so that we can continue this work once things have returned to a more normal condition. Send to FLSRV, P. O. Box 18191, Spokane WA 99228.
We look forward to working together and hope you’ll find our spectacular area worth supporting.
