Tubbs Hill compromise in works

Mayor Steve Widmyer said an acre at the base of Tubbs Hill features a concept often unheard of in government: compromise.

Coeur d’Alene’s urban renewal agency, ignite cda, owns two parcels abutting the northeast side of Tubbs Hill it no longer needs and intends to sell as a means of funding other public works projects.

This week, ignite’s board expressed support for a tentative collaboration between the Tubbs Hill Foundation and Mary Lou Reed that would see the agency recoup most of its investment into the land while preserving the land itself for use by the general public.

“I just see it as a win-win,” Widmyer told The Press Thursday. “I’m confident, if the deal can be put together, the ignite board would be very happy to work with them”/Keith Cousins, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.
