Coeur d’Alene Lake Drive Plan Mulled

It’s a beautiful 5-mile stretch of mostly lakefront property with spectacular views and a popular public trail along an old section of Interstate 90 just east of Coeur d’Alene. But who should maintain this land? City officials last week met with the Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) to address that question. The ITD has committed to hire a land use consultant to develop a master plan that would outline responsible parties for maintaining the corridor, which dead-ends at Higgens Point. “The consultant will determine what parties should be involved, who’s taking over what, and who is responsible for what,” said ITD project development engineer Jerry Wilson. “There should be one underlining owner of the property.” The ITD currently holds ownership of the corridor, but is no longer interested in it because the property is no longer part of the interstate highway system/Keith Erickson, Coeur d'Alene Today.

Question: Should Coeur d'Alene Lake Drive and the adjacent Centennial Trail be brought under one jurisdiction, with a master plan in place for both?
