Rock Creek Developer Downplays Traffic Impact

Ten vehicles at one North Side intersection is the difference between developer Lancze Douglass being forced to contribute money for intersection improvements and the project gaining approval as proposed. As a result of a traffic study, Douglass would not be required to help pay for any improvement at Addison Drive and Standard Street, a three-way intersection just north of Francis. A hearing on the apartment project is set for 9 a.m. Tuesday at City Hall.

County Commissioners Decide Impact Fee Doesn’t Have To Be Paid In/Around: Mead

The Spokane County commissioners saved developer Buster Heitman as much as $96,000 earlier this month. The commissioners overturned the board of hearing examiners when they ruled that Heitman does not have to pay impact fees on his Winfield Park subdivision in Mead. Heitman received a three-year preliminary approval for the subdivision in 1991.

Plans for a multimillion-dollar tourist park at the edge of the Little Bighorn National Battlefield will move ahead whether the National Park Service is involved or not, a top official of the Crow Indian Tribe said Tuesday. "At the moment there is no reason to consider this as a flopped project," said Arlo Dawes. "As a matter of fact, in all instances, technically, we have already gone around third base and are heading for home right now."

Rathdrum To Let Voters Decide Unlike Post Falls, City Will Put Micron Tax Package To Vote

Rathdrum voters will decide whether the city should promise tax assistance to Micron Technology Inc. in order to lure a giant manufacturing plant. City attorney Rollie Watson said he's been directed to schedule a Feb. 7 advisory vote, asking residents whether Micron should be offered tax-increment financing. Kootenai County is among 13 finalists for a $1.3 billion Micron expansion plant. Five of seven county sites pitched by business recruiter Jobs Plus are in Rathdrum. Two sites are in Post Falls, where the City Council has resisted efforts to hold a vote on tax-increment financing.

Subdivision Court Battle Could Outlive Issue At Stake In/Around: Indian Trail

Harlan Douglass' legal battle over the rejection of his application for the proposed Windhaven subdivision may take longer than the moratorium he wants to circumvent. "I don't know what he hopes to gain. By the time it gets through court, I'm sure the moratorium will be over," said Pat Dalton, the assistant city attorney handling the case. Douglass submitted paper work on the 324-home subdivision hours before the City Council passed a moratorium on new applications to divide land.
