Some Oppose Cougar Bay Piling Removal

Item: Feelings mixed re: removal of pilings on Cougar Bay/Tania Dall, KXLY

More Info: Kootenai County and the Idaho Department of Lands have signed an agreement allowing for future removal of the old pilings and booms. IDL says they’re considered a navigational hazard on parts of the Spokane River and the lake. But removing the pilings would ultimately make way for more traffic.”There are very few places on Lake Coeur d’Alene that kayaks and canoes and fisherman can get to without being molested by the noise and the wake,” said Grubb. IDL says plans to move forward with the project depend on funding.

Question: Do you support the plan to remove pilings on Cougar Bay by Kootenai County and Idaho Department of Lands?
