McEuen Field: Majority wants public vote

COEUR d'ALENE - By a show of cards, the crowd didn't support the conceptual plan for McEuen Field.

Those cards, flashed by audience members as questions came up, also said the city shouldn't move the Third Street boat launch.

And there should be a public vote - open for all Kootenai County residents.

"I hope it goes to a public vote," said Duane Severson, leaving the McEuen Field meeting at Woodland Middle School Thursday, the forum that gave the public an opportunity to address the design team about the park's redesign plan. "Over 50 percent of them are against it, from what I saw in there."

If it was feedback the team wanted, it's what they got, both pro and con. Around 300 people filled the gym, and many took the time to speak.

It's too big and grand some said, while others thought it was a home run. More here. Tom Hasslinger, Cda Press

Anyone attend last night's meeting? What is the liklihood of public vote re: McEuen?
