TWIN FALLS -- The Twin Falls City Council has agreed to a make a change to a land trade agreement that will allow the public to visit the dirt ramp Evel Knievel used in his unsuccessful attempt to jump the Snake River Canyon.

The decision deals with a 2007 agreement the city entered into with Casper Southgate LLC, in which the city would trade seven acres for land including the jump site, access to a nearby road and a parking area. But since then Casper Southgate has sold the land to another company, Renaissance Development LLC.

The council has agreed to allow the subdivision to be developed in multiple phases and to make other changes to the agreement.

The changes will allow the city to continue efforts to allow people to visit the dirt ramp Knievel used in 1974.
