Central Bark Gets More Time

Pooches have a little more time to run free at Central Bark, the 1.8-acre dog park near the intersection of Atlas and Nez Perce roads in Coeur d'Alene. The fate of the dog park, part of a 10-acre property owned by the Coeur d'Alene School District, has been uncertain for nearly a year, since trustees first decided to seek bids for the land. In August, the board voted unanimously to sell the property to Lutheran Academy of the Master for $480,000, with an anticipated closing date of Sept. 30. At Monday's school board meeting, Wendell Wardell, the district's chief operating officer, told trustees the deal had fallen through. “It seemed to be a concern as to how they would locate their building, a concern internally,” Wardell said. He told trustees that a “for sale” sign was going back up on the land, referred to by the district as the “Northshire” property/Maureen Dolan, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: P'haps the new and improved Coeur d'Alene School Board can see a way to preserve a portion of the district's “Northshire” property for a continued dog park?
