Growth & Development
In 2030, greater Coeur d’Alene uses comprehensive planning to guide and direct future growth and development…
We have further improved downtown as a regional center and developed vibrant neighborhood centers, where residents can walk or bike to cafes, shops, services and jobs. Coeur d’Alene has a ‘multi-modal’ transportation and street system that facilitates traffic flow, connections between neighborhoods, and pedestrian and bicycle routes and lanes. Public transportation connects all parts of the region with convenient, affordable, environmentally-friendly service. Innovative planning and good design have increased the supply of affordable housing. We continue to preserve our historic community treasures.
- Obtained railroad rights of way for major trail expansions and connections
- Conducted a study of traffic flow in the downtown center, balanced with pedestrian and bicycle needs as well as increased green space
