2009 Construction Projects List Description
1) What’s on the list? * Commercial (non-residential) projects due to start, finish or those in process in 2009. Also included are smaller portions of larger projects whose costs and construction will be spread over several years. The list contains projects whose funding derives from public and private sources, or a mix of both. Only a small percentage of revenue comes from federal stimulus dollars. 2) How did you compile the list? We used public records from local, state and federal sources to compile the list. Some of the projects’ values were pulled from permit lists; others came from documents from the business, institution or organization in question. In the case of the City of Spokane’s major projects list, we summed up smaller projects (under $2 million) into one number, and also pulled out WSU, and the Community Colleges of Spokane into their own line items, since both had several larger projects. 3) Construction is down this year: why compile a list of projects? There’s a public perception that because of the recession, economic activity has stalled. This is not the case. Businesses, nonprofit organizations and taxpayers continue funding construction that will boost our economy today, and in the future. 4) What about federal stimulus dollars? Any of those in the list? We’ve logged a small percentage of federal stimulus money for the listed projects as a whole. For example, WSDOT expects to receive $20 million in funding for its Eastern Washington projects from the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act (also known as the federal stimulus plan). The majority of funds are from private, local and state sources. Some non-stimulus federal funding is also included. 5) So what does the list mean for the local economy? The list represents jobs, not only in construction, but also in services like architecture, engineering, accounting, and even retail and restaurants. Using an economic development formula, we estimate $1.7 billion in projects equates to $3.4 billion in economic impact. *Note: this is NOT an exhaustive list. More projects exist that we have not been made aware of, or simply didn’t have time to compile. The list will be linked to our website, If you have questions, or know of a project missing from the list, contact Marketing & Communications Director Dawn Picken at
