DeArmond Mill Closing In 2 Months

Item: CdA loses last sawmill: DeArmond to close in two months/Becky Kramer, Spokesman-Review

More Info: Coeur d’Alene’s last sawmill will process its final log in May, a casualty of the nation’s mortgage lending crisis and rising values for waterfront property. Stimson Lumber Co. gave its 60 hourly employees at the DeArmond mill a two-month notice on Tuesday. Workers weren’t surprised.

Question: What is the best future use for the DeArmond Mill site? Another mill, high-end housing, education corridor, or other?
