Item: A more accessible Tubbs Hill: Plan would reduce grade of trail, create wheelchair turnarounds/Tom Hasslinger, Coeur d'Alene Press
More Info: The city of Coeur d'Alene is trekking forward with its plans to alter the east side of Tubbs Hill to make the popular hiking trail more accessible for people with disabilities. The General Services Committee, a subcommittee of the Coeur d'Alene City Council, recommended Monday the city contract Welch Comer Engineers for $9,000 engineering studies to determine how to improve wheelchair accessibility on the downtown hill. The proposed project doesn't have anything to do with creating a north trail on Tubbs Hill, which is how it earned its support from the Tubbs Hill Foundation.
Question: Does Tubbs Hill need to become more accessible?
