[Excerpt From Spokane City Website] "Mayor Dennis Hession today announced he has chartered a cross- departmental team of employees to shepherd the proposed Kendall Yards development through the required City processes necessary for a successful result.

'Kendall Yards exemplifies my economic growth vision for Spokane in that it creates opportunity for investment and subsequent increased revenues within our City borders, and it also preserves and even improves a former non-productive and contaminated property,' said Mayor Hession. 'Here is an excellent example of a multi-use development where people will live, work and play in the heart of Spokane.'

Hession said that the impetus for his decision to organize a focused, cross-departmental team approach to Kendall Yards was the recent announcement by Marshall Chesrown that he has investors interested in the first phase of the project that could allow that phase – between Monroe and Maple streets – to be constructed in 18 months rather than several years."
