LCDC Spurs East Seltice Way Surge

Years ago, a tract of property along the old section of Interstate 90 just west of Coeur d’Alene lay mostly dormant. Not much could be done with the sleepy stretch of land because there were no utilities. No water. No sewer. The land valuation along the Seltice Way corridor situated between the existing freeway and Spokane River was about $3 million. Fast forward. Today, the 115-acre area, which is now within the city of Coeur d’Alene, is thriving with commercial and residential development. A call center that employs 500 people. A public ice skating rink. Affordable senior housing. Riverfront homes. Condominiums. And perhaps most importantly, a park that provides direct access to the river/LCDC News & Review. More here.

Question: Do you really think East Seltice Way would have developed organically without help from Lake City Development Corp?
