March 2015 57 In 2012, Avista Utilities decided to redevelop Huntington Park in downtown Spokane, Washington to commemorate the company's original Monroe Street hydroelectric generating station built in 1889, and its 125th anniversary of supplying power from the powerful flow of the Spokane River. Prior to renovation the park was overgrown, ill-maintained and generally inaccessible to the public. Avista also funded the development of a plaza on the city hall parking lot. Construction began in 2014 on the 100-acre park, which is directly atop the hydroelectric facility. PHoto: JoHn D. MooRe.
