Boys & Girls Club Eyes Person Field

Item: Boys and Girls Club eyes Cd'A: Officials think Person Field would be ideal location/Tom Hasslinger, Coeur d'Alene Press

More Info: The Boys and Girls Club of Kootenai County wants to build a new home in Coeur d'Alene. And it thinks Person Field is the perfect place to do it. Aiming to fulfill a growing need and expand its footprint countywide, club leaders want to partner with the city to land a facility at the roughly 7-acre park. The neighborhood - with five schools in an approximately 2-mile radius - is a perfect fit for an after-school gathering place, they said. And a facility wouldn't infringe too much on the park's footprint.

Question: Should the city of Coeur d'Alene consider partnering with the Boys & Girls Club for a facility on Person Field?
