The city of Coeur d’Alene provides visual evidence that “progress” and “conservative” are not mutually exclusive. If you doubt it, take the Northwest Boulevard exit off of Interstate 90 and head south. Or better yet, pedal a bike along the Centennial Trail. Soon you’ll arrive at the modern Riverstone development, with shops, restaurants, offices, movie theaters, apartments, condominiums and a park. Further south, you’ll enter the education corridor, with a campus that serves North Idaho College, the University of Idaho and Lewis-Clark State College. Both areas occupy an area along the Spokane River that used to service the timber trade. From there, you’ll transition into the resort section of town, which is also getting a major facelift/Spokesman-Review Editorial Board. More here.
Question: What do you think about the statement in the first sentence of the editorial that “progress” and “conservative” are not mutually exclusive?
