Post Falls To Shut 2nd URDistrict

Item: Shut it down: Riverbend urban renewal district is 2nd in Post Falls to close/Brian Walker, Coeur d'Alene Press

More Info: Amid the ongoing debates of urban renewal reform, here's something for the taxing districts and taxpayers of Post Falls to celebrate. In November the Riverbend Urban Renewal District will be the second Post Falls URD to close in the 20-year history of the city's Urban Renewal Agency and one of the few in the state to terminate. While some URDs and improvement projects within them draw controversy, especially when taxpayer dollars are being used to fund them, the 330-acre Riverbend URD created in 1997 has seemed to avoid such battles. It is used by local officials as a shining example of how the urban renewal process is supposed to work.

Question: Why are urban renewal districts in Post Falls relatively controversy-free?
