For the life of me, I don't understand
town councils. How can they want
so much for their towns, yet talk about
destroying the beauty of it for money.
3 miles from us is the town of Sandpoint.
The inner city is growing by leaps and
bounds. Literally. We have a huge almost
a full block full, 3 story bank complex
that should be opening any day. At
least I have not heard of it being open
yet. It will be a bank on the lower level.
Offices I believe on the second level and
condo's on the top level. It over shadows
everything in town.
We have a smaller but as tall of a building
near the entrance of Sandpoint that has
a restaurant on the bottom floor. Ivano's.
So from first to 5th ...from Lake to Cedar
and some of the others to Larch we have
In Sandpoint there are a few streets left
of beauty. Old houses, tall trees. Over by
the Memorial Field is a few.
But from Cedar to Larch on 6th street,
it is to take your breath away during
the spring to fall, and winter isn't too bad
You see 6th Street has old houses, but
it is lined on both sides with the most
beautiful trees. Big trees. And it shades
the street in the summer. The fall leaves
rival New England.
Being a yard sale customer, I have walked
6th street on many occasions. I walk and
breath in the beauty. If you are ever in
Sandpoint, on a summer day, you have
to walk down it and appreciate it. And
maybe you better do it soon.
Because if the powers that be have
their way, it will be gone to the wayside,
as a lot of old Sandpoint has gone. See
powers that be want to make it commercial
6th Street from Cedar to Lake is already
commercial. And from Larch to the North
is and will be a big commercial project of
stores and housing. So you see this is just
a short stretch of 4 or 5 blocks of beauty.
Old time hometown beauty. It will surely
be a crime and a shame if they make it
And I am sure the people who live there
will be at the meeting to protest this. And
the rest of the town will figure it isn't my
neighborhood. But that too is sad, because
next time it could be their neighborhood that
goes thru the change, such as this.
