Council Seeks Open Meet On Person

From city of Coeur d'Alene spokeswoman Kristina Lyman re: the City Council meeting Tuesday night:

Council voted to direct city staff to arrange a public, televised meeting between it and school district Trustees to work out details surrounding the acquisition of Person Field. In addition, Council asked city staff to convene a meeting of the neighborhood around the field to talk about what residents want out of the park. The City and the district have not been able to come to an agreement on Person. The district wants $650,000 for its portion. The City says the real value of the property is half that and is proposing to that if it has to pay that full amount the district needs to make up the gap in value. The City is asking for increased use of the district’s gymnasiums and retention of the Sky Hawk recreational program and the dog park at Northshire Park.

Question: Do you think it's a good idea to have an open meeting on Person Field between the Coeur d'Alene City Council and the Coeur d'Alene School Board, with the surrounding neighborhood invited?
