The Spokane Public Facilities District was created in 1989 by the Washington State Legislature (RCW 36.100) to construct, own and operate the Spokane Veterans Memorial Arena. In 2002, the Board revised the District's Mission Statement to include other projects and in 2003, the voters overwhelmingly approved the transfer of the Spokane Convention Center and the Spokane Opera House to the District and a major addition to the Center.
As required by RCW 36.100, the SPFD was created by resolution of the Spokane City Council and Board of Spokane County Commissioners who were also authorized to appoint two members each to a five-member board of directors. Those four were authorized to select one person to serve a four-year term. The legislation specified that one of the five was to be a representative of the lodging industry within the boundaries of the District. By District policy, Board members can serve two four-year terms and any portion of an uncompleted term.
