The Old Atlas Mill Site
Location: Spokane River, Coeur d’Alene, Idaho
Verdis worked closely and collaboratively with Washington Trust Bank, the City of Coeur d’Alene and the Lake City Development Corporation to annex the Old Atlas Mill site into the city limits of Coeur d’Alene. The property was unique in that it was bisected by a BNSF right of way. Negotiations were undertaken to purchase the right of way. Verdis designed a conceptual development plan and prepared a site disturbance plan and a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP). Grading operations included mill debris clean up, mass grading and hydroseeding. The site was purchased by a developer and is slated for development upon presentation of a Planned Unit Development Master Plan to the City of Coeur d’Alene.
