Sidewalk Workshop Date Announced

Earlier this week we blogged about how sidewalk upheaval is causing Coeur d'Alene to take a long, hard look at fixing walkways in poor condition.

More than a dozen residents asked the city to shoulder the burden to repair broken and buckled sidewalks at this Tuesday's council meeting.

Now, the City Council has announced a second sidewalk workshop at the Coeur d'Alene Library for next Monday, April 21, at noon to discuss solutions. The meeting will be held in the library's community room.

Coeur d'Alene requires property owners to maintain and repair their sidewalks. It could enforce those who don't with fines and penalties. The city has decided enforcement is not the direction it wishes to proceed. Instead, the city could spend an estimated $250,000 annually to repair the sidewalks as it repaves city streets.
