Front Avenue property owners won't be asked to contribute as much as originally proposed. The city of Coeur d'Alene agreed to create a Local Improvement District Tuesday, but reduced the amount for affected property owners by $100 per front foot. So Front Avenue property owners who live across from McEuen Field will pay $300 per front foot, not $400, as previously considered. It breaks down to $845,100 for those owners, down from the previous $1.2 million. "I think it's a decent compromise," said Steve Widmyer, one of the property owners who protested the original amount, when reached by phone following the council's decision. "I think it's still a little high, but it is a compromise, and we need to move forward"/Tom Hasslinger, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.
Question: Are you surprised that this proposal passed on another split vote of the City Council?
