neighborhood overview

A cliff-ringed butte 5 miles (8.0 km) north of downtown Spokane, Five Mile is one of Spokane's newer residential areas. Homes here tend to be more costly due to the views, and the fact that the area lies within the Mead School District. Sky Prairie Park, Prairie View Elementary School and the Five Mile Grange are community hubs. The butte's north and west slopes remain wild and forested. Although no retail business districts exist atop the hill, it overlooks the commercial centers of Francis Avenue to the south, Indian Trail Road to the west, Wandermere to the northeast and North Division to the east. The neighborhood has visible connections to its past with many remaining farmsteads, contrasting and intermixing with new suburban subdivisions on level and rolling terrain. During the transition from rural to urban development, challenges do exist with gaps in urban infrastructure, connections, and amenities. A combination of families, retirees, and working professionals choose to live here. Subdivisions offer mostly mid-sized single family homes, while others have larger lots and homes. Presently, no neighborhood commercial businesses are located here, which requires residents to travel almost a mile south for shopping and weekly needs. Mead School District serves the neighborhood, with Prairie View Elementary and Five Mile Prairie School located in the community. Many have chosen to live here because of the schools. Residents love the outdoors here and are seen walking, biking, and enjoying the park and open spaces.
