Under construction: Hagadone Event Center

COEUR d'ALENE - Twenty-five years ago, the Coeur d'Alene Resort opened its doors to a hopeful public in a down economy.

"Some have credited its opening to stimulating the region's economy," said Jerry Jaeger, co-owner and president of Hagadone Hospitality. "Perhaps history will repeat itself."

Jaeger was referring to the Hagadone Events Center - a venue at the gated Coeur d'Alene Resort Golf Course that will combine an 11,000 square foot state-of-the-art meeting facility with an elaborate base for weddings and banquets, a swimming pool, a beach area and more.

Construction started last week and will be completed by July 1, Jaeger said.

That deadline is firm because the first party already is booked: Gov. Butch Otter has scheduled the opening ceremony for the Western Governors Conference at Hagadone Events Center June 30. Read more. MIke Patrick, Cda Press
