Trail on Highway 41, The Pointe zone change receive approval
POST FALLS - The Post Falls City Council on Tuesday night approved an agreement with the Urban Renewal Agency to construct a paved pedestrian trail on the east side of Highway 41 from Seltice Way to Mullan Avenue.
The trail is estimated to cost $725,000. The URA will pay for construction and materials, while the city will manage the project. It hasn't been determined if the city or Idaho Transportation Department will maintain the trail.
The council also:
* approved a zone change for 109 acres in The Pointe at Post Falls anchored by Cabela's from industrial to community commercial services for future retail, office and multi-family uses; and
* approved a 24-acre annexation request south of Prairie and west of Highway 41 by the Ross Point Water District and Post Falls Highway District.
A special-use permit, a request that will be heard in January, will be required for multi-family in The Pointe.
Sysco Foods has concerns having residential close to the industrial business. Jim Watson, developer the adjacent Expo property, has road alignment concerns.
