The Daily Bee: Park concepts tweaked after public comments

In Sandpoint, Idaho, two Parks and Recreation master plan concepts have been revised based on recent public feedback. The Sand Creek Downtown Waterfront concept includes additional green space for stormwater improvements, improved waterfront access along an extended boardwalk, relocation of the Carousel building, and a placeholder for a seasonal “ice skating boardwalk.” The City Beach concept now features more green space in the parking lot and the original site of the carousel building. The boardwalk underpass is depicted along the west side of the marina. The concepts are part of the Sandpoint Parks and Recreation Master Plan, and the city is holding public workshops to discuss them and proposed sidewalk projects connected to a local option sales tax up for consideration by voters on November 2. The tax is expected to generate $12.9 million for park projects, open space acquisition, and sidewalk improvements.
