LCDC Mulls $4M More In McEuen $$$

After hearing a presentation by Team McEuen on Thursday afternoon, Lake City Development Corp., said it would wait until next week to decide on bankrolling roughly $4 million in additional amenities for the McEuen Park makeover. The board lauded that the city of Coeur d'Alene is requesting the additional funding not because of cost overruns, but to cover items that were earlier removed from the project design and only recently reinserted. "That's critical," said member Brad Jordan, at the specially-called board meeting in the Coeur d'Alene Public Library. Rod Colwell, board member and chair of the finance committee, said LCDC would have the financial capability to cover the extra amenities. But he still showed reservations/Alecia Warren, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: Should LCDC OK funding for additional $4 million in McEuen Field upgrade work?
