Lake CdA Drive Transfer On Agenda

The Coeur d'Alene City Council has scheduled a workshop to discuss the transfer of Lake Coeur d'Alene Driver from the Idaho Department of Transportation to the city. The meeting is scheduled to begin at noon Monday in the Coeur d'Alene Library Community Room. In an article last Nov. 16, the Coeur d'Alene Press reported re: this proposal: "ITD no longer wants to maintain the old highway, and is offering the stretch of road to the city. Annual upkeep on the road would cost the city $13,160, according to the street superintendent, which the department said it could afford. The property up for grabs traces the old road but extends to water's edge in spots, creating public access to the lake, including an area at Silver Beach that the city has said would make a good location for a boat launch." More here.

Question: Would you like to see the city take control of Lake Coeur d'Alene Drive?
