LCDC To Spend $12.2M In 2014

Item: Big projects rule 2014 LCDC budget/Tom Hasslinger, Coeur d'Alene Press

More Info: Lake City Development Corp's fiscal year 2014 budget proposes to keep paying for big projects under way, like McEuen Park, sets placeholders for stalled ones, like Midtown, and keeps an eye on future endeavors by setting aside cash for potential ones. The latter example would be rebuilding the Four Corners area in downtown Coeur d'Alene, for which LCDC is setting aside at least $800,000. LCDC is also penciling in $103,000 for planning a potential event center in Riverstone - a proposal for which the urban renewal agency has already pledged $10 million. In all, the fiscal year 2014 calls for LCDC to spend $12.2 million while bringing in $13 million in revenue. LCDC is planning on beginning the fiscal year, Sept. 1, with $3.7 million in hand.

Question: Which potential LCDC-supported project do you favor most?
