Brand X: Reappraise Ed Corridor Land

Item: Ed corridor considerations: The world looked a whole lot different six months ago/CDA Press editorial board

More Info: Property values have fallen, leading reasonable people to suggest that a new appraisal of the site is warranted — particularly because most, if not all of the purchase price will be coming from Kootenai County taxpayers via tax increases.

Question: Should North Idaho College seek another appraisal of the old DeArmond Mill site that is proposed to serve as a future education corridor along the Spokane River? Or should trustees move ahead with the purchase b/c waterfront property is still prime land, even in a downturn?
