SPOKANE -- The City of Spokane launched a new texting service to let people know about parking restrictions that are in place as part of snow removal efforts.
The City said it is a pilot project designed to test the interest and effectiveness of such a service.
To sign up for this service, users can send a text to (509) 385-5775. Text the word “Brownes” to that number if you live in Browne’s Addition, the word “Hills” if you live along an arterial or in a residential hill route—those numbered 20 and above on our residential plow route map, and the word “Parking” if you live outside of these areas.
The text service will complement the City’s other citizen communications on snow, including information on City’s website, on Facebook, and Twitter, and on CityCable 5.
The City is working on an update to its website.
