LCDC: $10M For Center Possible

Item: LCDC: $10 million is possible: Agency could secure funds to help build NIC event center/Tom Hasslinger, Coeur d'Alene Press

More Info: Lake City Development Corp. has $10 million to help build an event center in Riverstone. Before the urban renewal agency decides whether it wants to pay for the bulk of the project North Idaho College is pitching, more market, feasibility and financing numbers have to be studied thoroughly. Until then, LCDC is interested in helping land the multi-use sports complex near the intersection of Northwest Boulevard and Interstate 90, it said Wednesday, and it could secure the funds to do it.

Question: Both NIC Trustee Ron Nilson and Councilman Dan Gookin support construction of an event center at Riverstone. However, Gookin said during a joint meeting of the council and LCDC board that he didn't support using urban renewal money to build the center. Should he (if it's the only way the center can be built)?
