The Board of County Commissioners has received several calls regarding an article in the Cd’A Press on Tuesday regarding the development of our Facilities Master Plan. There appears to be some confusion as to the development of the Plan and the eventual implementation of the Plan. The Plan is a work in progress. The Board is working with NAC Architecture and the plan is only about 50% complete. The plan’s emphasis is to streamline our operations and consolidate County facilities as much as possible. Currently, county facilities are very fractured in nature. For example, we have court rooms in four separate locations with two of those locations being off the main campus. The manpower required to service these sites is a substantial drain on county resources/Kootenai County commissioners news release. More here.
Question: The county goes on to say that the master plan includes a $27 million plan to build a new Justice Building and garage. What do you think of that idea?
