The Old Atlas Mill Site
Location: Spokane River, Coeur d’Alene, Idaho
Verdis worked closely and collaboratively with Washington Trust Bank, the City of CDA and the Lake City Development Corp, to annex the Old Atlas Mill Site into the city limits of City of Coeur d’Alene. The property was unique in that it had a BNSF right of way bisecting it. Negotiations to purchase the right of way were undertaken. Verdis designed a conceptual development plan for the project site and a prepared a site disturbance plan and a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP). Grading operations included mill debris clean up, mass grading and hydroseeding. The results were very positive! 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 CDA.
