Neighborhood Business Centers (NBC) Program
The City of Spokane, Economic Development Division’s Neighborhood Business Centers Program (NBC) is working with Neighborhood Councils and their business associations to assist in revitalizing Spokane’s historic pedestrian oriented commercial districts by implementing the Comprehensive Plan in the “Centers and Corridors” which are identified for focused infill growth. These neighborhood centers add strength and diversity to Spokane's economy. NBC fosters community well being, local character, a sense of place, and prosperity by supporting small businesses, community interests, safety, tourism, and local events within vibrant family oriented neighborhood business centers.
These walkable, traditional business centers are a unique destination for the tourist or resident at large and yet they are also the neighborhood center and community gathering spot. They offer numerous antiques and antiquity expertise; the usual and the unusual; music and expertise on instruments, lessons, and production assistance; the funky and fun gift, jewelry, and book stores along with some of the best coffee houses, bakeries, and local restaurants in the city all nestled among historic buildings, playgrounds, and neighborhood parks.
