By an overwhelming margin, citizens responding to Coeur d’Alene’s September online “CityPoll” support expanding the city’s bike lane system. As of Wednesday, 95 percent of voters (1,570) favored a continued focus on improving the trail system, while 5 percent (86) did not.
Trail expansion is expected to continue, according to city officials. “With the addition of the recently purchased BLM (Bureau of Land Management) and BNSF (Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad) property, the city has a great opportunity to extend trails west toward Huetter Road,” said Coeur d’Alene Parks and Recreation director Steve Anthony.

Each month, a CityPoll question is posted on the city’s website. Responses are carefully reviewed by city staff and considered in the strategic planning process to assure the city is being responsive to citizens while providing the best possible services.
