A proposed idea to reduce street parking on Fourth Street in Coeur d’Alene caused tension for some attendees at a public meeting last night. Some people say too many ‘ammenities like street lights, wide sidewalks, and street trees are replacing parking in the area. Here’s the story. Read it and answer some of these questions I had after reading this article:
1.)Since when have people who make between $40,000-$80,000 a year been considered eligible for ‘workforce housing?’
2.) Since when is workforce housing considered to be condos in the price range of $130,000 to $300,000? and
3.)Do motorists on Fourth Street really only drive between 16 and 20 miles per hour?
