Question: When Will It Be McEuen Field’s Turn

Issue: Library nearly funded: Parker family donates $330,000; just furniture money left to be raised/Tom Greene, Coeur d’Alene Press

DFO: This is a repeat of a story that we published Saturday. But I’m reprinting it here to initiate discussion re: a related subject. With the library now on schedule to be built and the mini-skyscrapers going up downtown, it can’t be long before McEuen Field becomes the center of attention again. And I doubt that the successful retirees filling those tall buildings will be thrilled about chain-link fences and softball crowd noise at 10 p.m.

Question: What do you see happening to McEuen Field, now that the neighborhood is changing from blue-collar workers to the well-to-do?
