The Parkside Bistro sits on land leased from BNSF Railway Co. The railroad is abandoning that unused rail line, and that piece of the land will revert to the city. The city doesn’t intend to renew the lease for the bistro or for Atlas Warehouse, which also occupies BNSF land.kathypl@spokesman.com

Kevin Eskelin has operated the Parkside Bistro, at the edge of Coeur d’Alene’s city park, for 13 years. Eskelin wants the city to compensate him for the loss of his business.
