Medical Lake can be the Gem of Spokane County
Medical Lake is a beautiful picture of small-town America with potential to be the gem of Spokane County. I believe Medical Lake can preserve its unique small town natural beauty by creating a vibrant downtown where people can experience a boutique business district with an abundance of outdoor recreation opportunities, something for everyone. I believe, as confirmed by census data, that 67% of Medical Lake homeowners are single working women head of households, with children, who are not on state assistance. Medical Lake’s average household income exceeds that of both neighboring towns in the west plains. The rest of the demographic is military, retired military, or military adult children who settled and now work in the region. We are mostly a town of young families. What are we offering them? I believe if action isn’t taken soon to create a vibrant downtown district that attracts our own citizens and well as others, our downtown will continue to crumble, wealth will leave, and Medical Lake will become a poorer rental community with increased crime. We are not a poor community; we are a rich community! We are rich in civic pride, rich in natural beauty, and rich in neighborly love! It appears we a small problem, we are suffering from a state of deferred maintenance, and there is much that can be done about that! I believe together we can do great things, together we can address this small problem!
