COEUR d’ALENE — The city of Coeur d’Alene and Lake City Development Corp. will enter into a contractual agreement to ensure both parties are on the same page before work begins on the McEuen Field project.

The six-page contract, which contains liability, timeline and financial obligations on the estimated $14.2 million project, will go before the General Services Committee at noon on Monday in the Community Room of the public library.

It will go to the City Council the following week for approval.

LCDC pledged to finance up to $11.5 million for the park upgrade.

Contingencies, such as ensuring the money only goes toward public improvements in the park, are part of the proposed the contract.

“It’s basically to put both parties on the same page,” said Keith Erickson, LCDC spokesman, on the reason for the written agreement. “They want to make sure that with this kind of money everything is spent as it should be.”

    WHY is Goodlander on BOTH the LCDC Board AND the city council???.....This is a complete conflict of interest.

    Goodlander; Please have the Integrity to resign from one of these positions.....It is unfair for you to be in both positions.

    Quote Jill Heine: "How about a guarantee that I will find a parking space when I visit for a stroll on tubbs?"

    You might be interested in the 11th Street Tubbs Hill trailhead and parking lot. I've never seen the lot full and it's a much quieter location then the parking lot and boat launch on the other side.

    I don't know what makes me sadder. The fact that McEuen will be gone forever or that the current city council cared nothing about giving the citizens a chance to vote nay or yeah on this project. Regardless it's a sad day for the City of Coeur d'Alene. 2013 will come but by then the damage will be done and we will all be left to pay the bill.

    Why would LCDC need a professional spokesperson? I thought positions like that we're reserved for large organizations. Thank you.

    “They want to make sure that with this kind of money everything is spent as it should be.”

    I hope they are careful with every dollar of taxpayer money entrusted to them, not just the really big money.
