Mayor, Council, LCDC Set Summit

It's been 17 years since the Coeur d'Alene City Council voted to create the Lake City Development Corporation to revitalize blighted areas of the city. Now some community leaders think it's time to revisit that organization's goals. On Thursday, the LCDC board of directors will sit down with Coeur d'Alene Mayor Steve Widmyer and the city council to do just that. "You know LCDC is one of the most important things we do in this city," Widmyer told The Press. "Rather than have a 20-minute presentation on what they have done, I wanted to be able to sit down for an hour or two to discuss their goals and take a look at their mission statement that was written 17 years ago." Tony Berns, executive director of LCDC, said he welcomes the conversation and looks forward to having an opportunity to explain LCDC's role in the community, which he thinks oftentimes is misunderstood/Jeff Selle, Coeur d'Alene Press.

Question: Are you more satisfied with the operation of LCDC today than you were 4 years ago?
