The East Side Highway District is proposing paying for three transportation projects through local improvement districts (LIDs), but some property owners in the district say this is just another way to tax them.
Hearings will be held this Saturday on the Sunnyside Road LID, a Burma Road (in Harrison) LID, and an LID on O'Gara Road in Harrison. The cost of the LIDs would be split among owners of parcels that access those road sections.
Here's a description of the projects and more information from the Coeur d'Alene Press.
What do you think? In an economy where there is just no money for projects like this, are LIDs a good way to get the work done or is it unfair for the property owners involved?
