Designers Suggest Getting Rid Of Independence Point Parking

It's the best views Coeur d'Alene has to offer, so why is the area being used to park cars? That's what the Mayors' Institute on City Design resource team is wondering about Independence Point.

The resource team, made up of world-recognized designers, is in town to help with the education corridor expansion project. But what caught there eye was the acre of parking next to the city's showpiece lake. Now they're strongly recommending that parking be filled in- with grass. Here's the story from the Coeur d'Alene Press.
