Press: Step Right Up, LCDC

Property owners along Front Avenue should ante up for improvements that will increase their property values, but city officials need to put a reasonable lid on their request. The city might create a LID - Local Improvement District - that would pull in $1.2 million of the estimated $2.9 million needed for improvements along the street as part of the McEuen Park reconstruction project. That boils down to some $400 per foot of frontage space - an astronomical and unreasonable sum. Some of the negotiating that's beginning to take place centers on whether or not the city promised no additional taxes as part of the McEuen funding plan. That's a legitimate question which we'll answer in a moment, but it's not the right target/Coeur d'Alene Press Editorial Board. More here.

Question: Should LCDC help pay for improvements on Front Avenue?
