McEuen Park, just like any large construction project, has had a few setbacks but those involved with its makeover say they are doing their best to keep it on track to finish on time and on budget. "There has been a myriad of issues," said Dean Haagenson, CEO of Contractors Northwest Inc. "Some of those would extend this out far beyond the end of May, but the city, the contractor and the design team are working to complete the project on time. "It's going to be tight, but it is doable and we are going to suck it up and make it happen." Haagenson said there have been project delays that could wind up pushing the project back, and there may be other unforeseen circumstances that delay the project in the future, but for now they are committed to getting things wrapped up sometime in May/Jeff Selle, Coeur d'Alene Press.

Question: What new McEuen Field amenity do you want to use first, when the complex reopens?
