City Council Member
Spokane City Council Member Candace Mumm is serving her second term representing Northwest Council District #3, which includes the Five Mile, North Indian Trail, Balboa/South Indian Trail, North Hill, Northwest, Emerson-Garfield, West Central, West Hills and Riverside neighborhoods.
The City’s Water System Plan was revamped under the leadership of Council Member Mumm and former Council Member, Jon Snyder. The Plan outlines stepped up conservation methodology, and aligns with the city’s massive investment in cleaning up the Spokane River. Mumm worked to gain “green bonds” and a solid financial plan to execute the City’s largest ever public works project building a series of combined sewer overflow tanks and higher levels of treatment for used water.
Council Member Mumm has an extensive history of working to improve the city’s business districts, parks and neighborhoods. She was twice elected president of the City’s Plan Commission, which helped create the city’s first Comprehensive Plan. That plan focuses growth in Business Centers and Corridors, established the foundation for the City’s Shoreline Master Plan and revised the land-use zoning code. She also served as vice-chair of her Five Mile neighborhood and as stakeholder manager for the City’s first neighborhood-specific Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan.
