Volunteer - Hotel/Motel Tourism Promotion Area Commission

The City of Spokane Valley announces one opening on the Spokane Valley Hotel and Motel TPA Commission. Spokane Valley City Council adopted Spokane Valley Municipal Code 3.21 which establishes the Commission. The Commission is created as an advisory body to make recommendations to the City Council for use of revenues derived from the TPA fee. Appointments to or removals from this Commission shall be made by the Mayor with confirmation by a majority of Council. The intent is to appoint individuals who represent a cross-section of hotels within the City of Spokane Valley. City Council would rely on these hoteliers’ expertise in proposing an annual workplan/budget for expenditure of the funds generated from TPA fees, which would guide Council in allocating the funds for tourism and marketing promotion. The Commission shall be composed of five voting representatives and one non-voting ex-officio member assigned by the City Manager, who will function as liaison between the City Council and the Commission. Members shall serve without compensation. 

The current vacancy on the Commission is for a midscale hotel member with a term to expire on December 31, 2024. Commission members shall include one member from an economy hotel, one from a midscale hotel, one from an upper midscale hotel, one from an upscale hotel, and one from a full-service hotel with over 200 rooms. 

All applicants for consideration must be operators/owners of lodging businesses within the City of Spokane Valley or employees of the operator of such lodging business. Applications should be submitted to Spokane Valley City Clerk Marci Patterson at Spokane Valley City Hall, 10210 E. Sprague Avenue, Spokane Valley, WA 99206, or to, or by calling 509-720-5102. Print or download a Volunteer TPA aplication. Applications must be submitted and received no later than 4:00 p.m. Friday, October 6, 2023
