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.

A hearing on the apartment project is set for 9 a.m. Tuesday at City Hall.
Two Bruchi's Cheesesteak and Subs franchise restaurants are scheduled to open in the Valley this spring. One will replace the 7-Eleven store that recently closed at Mullan and Mission.

The Spokane County commissioners saved developer Buster Heitman as much as $96,000 earlier this month.

"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 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.
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.
