neighborhood overview

One of the first communities in Spokane to be developed with numerous suburban neighborhoods was a large tract of land east of the city called East Central Spokane. As the name suggests, it is on the east side of Spokane and centrally located. The official neighborhood is expansive and covers multiple areas considered by locals to be independent neighborhoods, such as the Sprague Union District on East Sprague Avenue, the South Perry District, the Underhill Park area and the University District on the eastern fringe of Downtown Spokane. It was roughly bounded on the north by Trent Avenue, then later by Sprague Avenue, and extended south to Fourteenth Avenue. East Central neighborhood is in transition and growing. The low cost of living combined with proximity to downtown has created a suitable location for many young families to move in and call this part of Spokane home. With this influx of new residents, crime has dropped and diversity has increased. Neighbors are full of optimism about the neighborhood’s future. On any given day, families, professionals, and older veterans share space within the neighborhood.
