Mayor Still Backs McEuen Changes

Coeur d’Alene’s mayor and three council members say the election Tuesday of three critics of a multimillion-dollar plan to remake a downtown park does not sway their support for the plan. “I’m really committed to the parking and to improving the field,” said Councilwoman Deanna Goodlander of the plan to remake McEuen Field. “That’s what the future holds. We don’t plan for today. We plan for 10 years down the road.” On election night, the three winners of council seats – one incumbent and two challengers – said their victories resulted from public discontent over the plan, which would remove a boat launch and baseball fields, replacing them elsewhere in the city to make room for additional green space and other features/Alison Boggs, SR.

Question: What will be the fallout if Mayor Bloem and the Coeur d'Alene council minority pushes ahead with changes to McEuen Field, on a 4-3 vote?
