COEUR d'ALENE - The 2030 Coeur d'Alene Visioning Project team will celebrate the launch of CDA2030 in the Fourth of July Parade in downtown Coeur d'Alene Thursday.
The new logo will be unveiled on a float in the parade, and members of the brainstorming team will be on hand to answer questions and provide information on the project that's aimed at crafting a vision for what the Lake City should look like in 2030 and beyond.
"The 2030 Coeur d'Alene City Visioning Project is really a research project that seeks to broadly engage our diverse community and create a new long-range vision for greater Coeur d'Alene," said Charles Buck, University of Idaho Associate Vice President and chairman of the CDA2030 Project Coordination Group in a press release.
The project will culminate with a detailed implementation plan to guide efforts to realize the community's vision.
Involvement from all age groups is essential to ensure that the 2030 Coeur d'Alene City Visioning Project is embraced by the public, the group said. Throughout the coming months, public forums, events and workshops will be held to provide a way for citizens to give input on their ideas. Web-based tools, social media, focus and working groups, and community surveys will also be utilized for the project communications.
The project coordination group appointed city visioning expert Steven Ames, APA of Steven Ames Planning, to serve as project consultant and Nicole Kahler will serve as project manager.
