Welcome to the South Perry Business & Neighborhood Association (SPBNA).

The South Perry Business and Neighborhood Association (SPBNA) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit and was founded in 1999 as a way to strengthen the community and the businesses in our District. Since then we have grown to put on multiple events and we partner with other neighborhood organizations to grow their events as well.

We have been serving the South Perry District since 1999. Our organization is dedicated to helping the South Perry District continue to grow and thrive as a vibrant community and business district. SPBNA works with the neighbors and business owners to put on numerous events each year that make our District a wonderful place to live, work, play, and worship.

We meet on the second Tuesday of each month at 6:30pm. We are currently meeting at Emmaus Church. All are welcome to attend and participate.

Our History

The South Perry District is one of oldest neighborhoods in Spokane, and was among the first areas of the city to be developed in the late 1800s. While early residents of the neighborhood were of mostly Scandinavian descent, the South Perry District is currently one of the most diverse areas of Spokane.

The South Perry District is conveniently located near the downtown core, the University and Medical Districts, and I-90. While only minutes away from the center of the city, the South Perry District has a small town, community feel. The District is centered around the pedestrian friendly, historic, Perry Street. Most residents enjoy a short walk from their homes to restaurants, pubs, hair salons, coffeeshops, and more.

With a farmer’s market, churches, a community garden, and a beautiful park, the South Perry District is a great place to live for all types of families and backgrounds.

Our Mission

The mission of the SPBNA is to strengthen the South Perry District and the surrounding community. Our values include: bringing new businesses, residents, and institutions to the District; strengthening and promoting the businesses and institutions that are here; building relationships between the residents and institutions in the area; and helping South Perry continue to be an attractive, healthy, and vibrant community in which to live, work, play, and worship.
