CdA mulls sale of land near Tubbs Hill

Coeur d’Alene’s urban renewal agency, ignite cda, wants to hear what the community thinks about its proposal to sell a small piece of residential land on the north side of Tubbs Hill.

The agency’s board decided Wednesday to gather feedback after members of the Tubbs Hill Foundation raised concerns about how the sale could impact the popular park between downtown and Lake Coeur d’Alene.

“Just go out and stand in front of City Hall and look up at that ground now and then imagine – well, worst-case scenario – high rises, and Tubbs Hill flat disappears,” said Chuck Hosack, a board member of the nonprofit group dedicated to the preservation of the tree-covered park.

Hosack emphasized the importance Tubbs Hill has on the city, calling it “the crown jewel of downtown Coeur d’Alene” and a hidden economic driver for real estate values/Eli Francovich, SR. More here.

Question: Do you support/oppose the sale of this land?
