NIC To Host New Boat Launch?

In the Coeur d'Alene Press this morning, reporter Maureen Dolan tells of a proposal to use three of the 17 acres in the Education Corridor owned by North Idaho College for a new boat launch. Parks Director Doug Eastwood presented the plan to the Board of Trustees Wednesday. He was asking for conceptual approval, so planners go develop a plan to possibly replace the Third Street boat launch. In a proposal unveiled earlier this month to upgrade McEuen Field, Team McEuen planned to close the Third Street launch to expand green space. To do so, city leaders would need to find an alternative site that could handle the strong boat traffic that now uses the popular downtown Coeur d'Alene launch.

Question: What do you think of the idea of moving the boat launch to the Education Corridor site?
