Item: Two sites possible for NIC event center: Possible site at Riverstone valued at $2.5 million/Tom Hasslinger, Coeur d'Alene Press
More Info: Organizers hoping to build an event center in Riverstone have identified two parcels of land in the multi-use development where the 5,000-seat arena could go. One site is about 10 acres and the other about 6. The 6-acre site is west of West Riverstone Drive and the 10-acre site is east of the drive. The 6-acre site is where Citylink's parking lot now sits. Riverstone developer John Stone estimates the land's worth at $2.5 million, but he says he'll sell the land at its appraised value if North Idaho College moves forward with a purchase.
Question: I sense that the idea of an events center is gaining momentum. What do you think?
