Sandpoint Opens Downtown To All Non-Motorized Transportation

This isn't about Kootenai County, but it does involve our neighbor's in Sandpoint and I thought it's kind of cool so I'm using it: Sandpoint's City Council last night voted to legalize all non-motorized transportation in the downtown core, ending a 20-year prohibition on skateboarding.

By amending its current ordinance, the council is opening up downtown streets to all forms of human-powered transportation, a right previously given only to bicyclists.
Here's the article from the Bonner County Daily Bee.
