SPOKANE, Wash.--The business owners in East Spokane are working to shake its reputation. Business leaders hope to impove the area.
The City of Spokane turned Sprague from Cook to Grant into two lanes. Businesses along East Sprague have new businesses coming in and are fixing an old one.
"Over the last 3 years we've seen improvements. More people coming to this area because they're starting to feel like it's safer,” said Hans Rauth, Owner of the Flying Pig.
Business leaders are hoping for new sidewalks and lights next.
