Council OKs Front Avenue Changes

A final agreement between the city of Coeur d'Alene and the Hagadone Corporation to convert a portion of Front Avenue to a pedestrian corridor was approved by the city council on Tuesday. The agreement essentially details what each entity will be responsible for when construction begins on the project later this month. It's scheduled to be completed by mid-March. According to city engineer Gordon Dobler, the city will contribute $150,000 toward the project, and the Hagadone Corp. will contribute the remainder of the associated costs. Dobler said the exact amount the Hagadone Corp. contributes has not been finalized because some details are still being worked out, but the number will equal the final cost of the total project -- less the $150,000 the city has committed. "I can give you a fairly accurate estimate of what that would be," Dobler told the council. "It would be $950,000 to just shy of $1 million"/Jeff Selle, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: Do you approve of this project?
