Close Race In Prop 1

Posted: Updated:

Another close local race in Spokane County is Prop #1. As of Tuesday night, voters are saying they do not want the levy to pass, by a margin of 51% No to 49% Yes.

Prop 1 is a levy in Spokane County that would raise no more than approximately $18 million dollars so the county can purchase land in the  "accident potential zone" at the end of the runway at Fairchild Air Force Base.

Currently, nearly 190 manufactured home units occupy the land within the APZ, creating an encroachment problem for the base.
