Plans for a sports complex and a neighborhood park will move forward in Post Falls thanks to a deal between the city and a developer.

The agreement between the city and Copper Basin Construction will allow for a future 25-acre, multi-use sports complex on the north end of the Tullamore subdivision on the south side of Prairie Avenue and an 8.3-acre neighborhood park in the development west of Highway 41.

"It's a win-win for the development, the developer and the city," said Dave Fair, Post Falls parks and recreation director.

Mayor Ron Jacobson said the neighborhood park — between Hope and Early Dawn avenues and east of Charleville Road — should have been completed several years ago under Vision First, the original developer, but then the Great Recession struck/Brian Walker, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.
