City Tightens Fort Grounds Multi-Use

Building a multi-family home in the Fort Grounds neighborhood just got a little tougher. The Fort Grounds Homeowners Association petitioned the Coeur d'Alene City Council Tuesday night to lower one of the thresholds for property owners in R-12 and R-8 residential zones who want to overlay portions of their neighborhood with special use restrictions. Members of the homeowners association in the Fort Grounds tried earlier this year to secure enough signatures to prevent a condominium project in their historic single-family home neighborhood. Currently, multi-family homes are allowed in the Fort Grounds area because it is zoned R-12, explained Warren Wilson, deputy city attorney/Jeff Selle, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: How often do you visit or drive through the Fort Grounds area?
