School Board To Hold Special Meeting

The Coeur d'Alene School Board has scheduled a special meeting at 3:30 p.m. today in the district office, 311 N10th, to discuss a “possible amendment to action taken (on Monday) regarding disposal of property.” As you know, the School Board voted 3-1 Monday to dispose its 3.8 acres at Person Field at 15th & Garden. On Tuesday, the Coeur d'Alene City Council unanimously instructed staff to work with the School District to purchase that property. The city owns an eastern portion of Person Field, consisting of the softball field, located on about 3 acres. CSB Chairman Tom Hamilton and Superintendent Hazel Bauman were at the meeting to assure the council that the board and district would work with the city to make the purchase possible. Also today, the School Board is expected to authorize the sale of general obligation bonds. (Coeur d'Alene School District photo: Trustee Chairman Tom Hamilton)

Question: Are you glad to see city and School Board seemingly working together to save Person Field as green space?
