Business and government activists have formed a new nonprofit group to study plans for downtown Coeur d’Alene.
Lake City Coalition has 16 members representing 25 different sectors, co-chair Nancy Sue Wallace said.
The group will hold meetings for community suggestions. The first meeting will be Friday, July 25.
Group member Bob Potter of Job Plus said it’s important to bring office business to downtown, especially during the winter months when tourism has dried up.
“You want to have people going into restaurants, going into clothes stores,” he said. “It’s vital during the shoulder months. You need more than tourism downtown and retailers looking at each other.” , DataTimes
