About Spokane Public Facilities District

The Spokane Public Facilities District was formed to replace the Spokane Coliseum in 1989. The Spokane PFD was the first PFD in the State and was authorized by the Washington State Legislature by virtue of RCW 36.100. The Legislature appropriated $500,000 to the District to commence operations.

The District is a municipal corporation. It is an independent taxing authority and a taxing district as defined in the state Constitution. The boundaries are coextensive with the boundaries of Spokane County.

Spokane Public Facilities District owns and operates four facilities including the 12,500-seat Spokane Veterans Memorial Arena, the 2,600-seat First Interstate Center for the Arts, 300,000 sq ft Spokane Convention Center and the new multi-sport venue, The Podium.
