UPDATE: Council Votes 5-1 To Proceed With Plans For McEuen Park Project

COEUR d' ALENE, Idaho - The controversial McEuen Park project is moving forward in Coeur d'Alene. Late Tuesday night the Coeur d'Alene City Council voted to proceed with plans to develop a multi-purpose, family park that will include a 2,500-seat amphitheater, a Grand Plaza, tennis and basketball courts, an ice skating rink in the winter, and a multi-level parking facility in the area that now houses the 3rd Street boat launch and the McEuen baseball field.
 
Council members voted 5-1 in favor of the plan, however a concession to remove the development of Tubbs Hill from the project - proposed by Council President Ron Edinger - was unanimously approved. Edinger also made motions to include removing the 3rd Street boat launch and McEuen baseball field from the plan, along with allowing a public vote on the overall project, but those three motions died due to a lack of a second. The council did adopt a resolution not to use bonds, levies, or tax dollars other than urban renewal money. The cost of the project, according to reports, is projected to be between $15-39 million.
