Attention to photos sent regarding 2029 W. Second Ave. property

A few weeks ago I asked our BANC communications officer, Tim Finneran, to forward the public notice for the application of a demolition permit related to the property at 2029 W. Second Ave. to our neighborhood council. I also asked Tim to include photos of the building that was planned to occupy this address. In error, I provided copy written photos in my email to Tim.  This was my error.

Respecting the legal rights of the owners of those photos, I ask you to delete any copies you have of these photos and to not make any that you have public in any manner.

These photos will be removed from any form of electronic media used by our executive committee.

Thank you for your attention to this and my apologies for any inconvenience this causes you and also to the legal owners of the photos.

Chair, Browne's Addition Neighborhood Council

The Friends of Coeur d’Alene will conclude a four-month celebration of the 125th Anniversary of Coeur d’Alene Park in Browne’s Addition with Parkfest on the grounds of the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture with music and art, classic cars and a showing of the movie, “The Music Man.”

The day will kick off at 3 pm with the music of the Jesse Weston’s Rhythm and Blues Band. The band was voted Best New Blues Band by the Inland Empire Blues Society in 2015. 
A Classic Car Show in front of the Campbell House and a restored vintage fire truck will be on display for visitors to view and ask questions of the owners.
