Item: Marina back on drawing board: Hagadone submits plans for Blackwell Island/Alecia Warren, CDA Press
More Info: After years of research and consulting, Hagadone Hospitality has set the wheels in motion once again to excavate and replace the Blackwell Island Marina. "We spent well into the six figures -- many six figures," said John Barlow, president of Hagadone Real Estate Holding, of the past three years rethinking the project. "Many developers might have given up, but we know this will be Coeur d'Alene's finest marina." Armed with an entirely new set of environmental standards, Hagadone Hospitality resubmitted a joint permit application to the state Department of Lands and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on Monday.
