Hamilton: City Didn’t Ask For Time

Responding to Coeur d'Alene Press story reporting that Central Bark, the dog park in the Northshire subdivision area (Atlas & Nez Perce), is for sale along with adjacent Coeur d'Alene School District property, School Board Chairman Tom Hamilton commented:”

It should be noted that Superintendent Bauman, myself and Trustee Seddon all attended and spoke at the City Council meeting where Person Field was discussed. A number of representatives from the city were also there and although it was noted several times that the Northshire property was also be disposed of by the district, no one from the city spoke of any interest in that property. Mr. Wardell is exactly correct in his statement that had the City Council asked for time to consider Northshire (as they did with Person Field) the Board more than likely would have seen fit to honor that request.

Question: Should the School Board back off & give the city of Coeur d'Alene time to also purchase the 1.8 acres that contains the Central Bark dog park?
