Orzell Seeks Total Cost On McEuen

During the Coeur d'Alene City Council meeting Tuesday, City Hall critic Frank Orzell raised questions re: the McEuen Field project. You can read Orzell's concerns in the draft minutes of City Clerk Renata McLeod's report below:

Frank Orzell, Coeur d’Alene, stated that he wanted to know when the taxpayers would be told the total cost for McEuen, which he believes is $23 million.   He believes that any costs of city employees related to the project should also be added in to the total.  Mr. Tymesen stated that the document presented by Mr. Orzell at $23 million does not add up and that he will know the final costs after the completion of the project.  Mr. Orzell stated that he believes the project was supposed to increase in green space and from the pictures presented tonight he believes there is a subtraction of green space and he would like a breakdown of the totals. More here.

Question: Has anyone been down to McEuen Field to view the progress of the makeover?
