keeping midtown unique
Corporation and local stakeholders saw tons of potential to enhance the vibrancy of midtown through revitalization efforts. In 2008, ignite cda partnered with the city of Coeur d’Alene and Fourth Street property owners to help reconstruct the arterial along a 10-block stretch on Fourth Street from Lakeside Avenue to Harrison Avenue.
Work included street reconstruction involving sewer and water infrastructure upgrades, two elevated intersections designed to calm traffic, street and sidewalk beautification and enhancements, parking upgrades, installation of public art, eye-catching bike racks and new street trees. This public outreach effort was well received and transformed a deteriorated section of 4th street into a safer, more vibrant and pedestrian friendly corridor.
