On top of the Four Corners project 2017 with see the city embark on more projects like a new parking garage to take care of parking needs in the downtown area.  And a complete revitalization of Seltice Way that includes the city’s first 2-lane roundabout and a multi-use walking path for pedestrians.  Neither of these projects would be possible without funding the Coeur d’Alene urban renewal agency, ‘Ignite CDA.’
