Blackwell Island annexation begins

A request filed Friday asks the city of Coeur d’Alene to annex a largely developed portion of Blackwell Island. The currently unincorporated land is owned by Marina Yacht Club LLC, a subsidiary of the Hagadone Corporation, and is leased to the entities that operate The Cedars Floating Restaurant and Hagadone Marine Center. John Barlow, a consultant for the Hagadone Corporation, told The Press a significant amount of money was spent last year upgrading the infrastructure at the marina — including improving the service buildings, adding parking, and increasing the size of the sales area/Keith Cousins, Coeur d'Alene Press.

DFO: This is long overdue. Thoughts?
