SPOKANE VALLEY -- Business owners say the change to one-way traffic on Sprague and Appleway yeas ago is hurting them.  But supporters say the idea has barely had a chance to work.

Spokane Valley City Council voted 5-2 Wednesday night to send their Urban Growth Plan, known as SARP, back to the city's planning commission.  SARP stands for Sprague Appleway Corridors Sub-area Plan.

A point of contention is Sprague as a one-way road and the new restrictions on businesses.  People argued that the city needs to plan for the future while others say the city needs to help businesses now.

After SARP goes back to the Planning Commission, they will hear more public testimony.  Then the Planning Commission will make their recommendation to the city council.
