Nonini, Pachydermers Oppose Ed Corridor

Item: Corridor opponents speak out: North Idaho Education Forum, Pachyderm Club sponsored $18 dinner/Maureen Dolan, Coeur d’Alene Press

More Info: Invited speakers Rep. Bob Nonini R-Coeur d’Alene, Sen. Mike Jorgenson R-Hayden Lake, Coeur d’Alene Mines chief Dennis Wheeler and former Jobs Plus director Bob Potter blasted the college’s decision to raise $10 million through foregone taxes to acquire the 17-acre parcel of waterfront land adjacent to the college from developer Marshall Chesrown to be used in the creation of the educational corridor. “There are plenty of places to put that campus. It doesn’t have to go there,” Nonini said.

Question: What do you think of attempts by the Pachyderm Club and legislators from Post Falls and Hayden to stop Coeur d’Alene’s Education Corridor?
