Question: How Is CDA Urban Renewal District Doing?

Issue: Bill targets renewal districts: Lawmakers seek limits, shift in control/Parker Howell, Spokesman-Review

Pro Bill: “You have tax burden or taxation without representation, and that’s a concern,” (state Sen. Mike) Jorgenson told members of the House Revenue and Taxation Committee Wednesday.

Con Bill: “I just think it’s misguided legislation,” said Tony Berns, executive director of Lake City Development Corp., Coeur d’Alene’s urban renewal agency. “The system is working very well. It’s a very strong economic development tool for Idaho.”

Question: How would you rate the work the Lake City Development Corp. has accomplished with urban renewal under the current rules & regs?
