CDA 2030 celebrates community planning month

Print Article

October is National Community Planning Month, celebrating the benefits of planning in communities, and CDA 2030 is looking toward the future.

Community planning takes a big-picture approach and looks at both current and future needs. Community planning helps preserve parks and green spaces, maintain or improve the character of a neighborhood, reduce environmental impacts, and determine where structures are built. This year, the theme “Healthy Communities, Healthy People” focuses on the many facets of creating healthy communities.

Planning for a healthy community takes the coordination of many diverse organizations including local medical facilities, regional police, fire and emergency services, city planning staffs and numerous community service and outreach groups. Our area is fortunate to have a community-driven nonprofit organization dedicated to developing a vision for greater Coeur d’Alene and a plan to get there. CDA 2030 is a link that connects these groups in an effort to achieve the community’s vision of becoming one of the healthiest cities in the nation by the year 2030.

Earlier this year, CDA 2030 helped secure a grant from America’s Best Communities to pursue healthy living initiatives. As a result, Panhandle Health District and Viking Booster and Education Foundation (Hayden Triathlon) each received micro-grants to help improve the health and vitality of our region. These groups are helping to support just a few of the 178 actions outlined in the CDA 2030 Implementation Plan, an action plan designed to make our community vision a reality.

For more information about CDA 2030, our community’s vision and Implementation Plan, please visit www.cda2030.org and like them on Facebook. Look for more articles throughout this month about CDA 2030 and how it is celebrating National Community Planning Month through the implementation of our community’s vision.
