Let your voice be heard!

We need your participation to develop a community vision, comprehensive plan and an action plan for the future of Coeur d’Alene.  Public input and involvement is absolutely essential to this process! Envision Coeur d’Alene will offer a variety of surveys, community meetings, visioning sessions, mapping exercises, and much more.  Stay tuned for public meetings in various locations and formats to get the entire community involved. The process is anticipated to be complete by December 2020, so find ways you can engage and participate now! You can take a survey, attend a workshop, catch up with us at a scheduled event or a pop-up location, stop by City Hall to chat, or call us by phone. Provide us with your input and feedback, we’re willing to listen!

Current Engagement Opportunities


The current survey is now closed. Staff is compiling the results and will post the results below as soon as they are available.

Vision Validation & Goals Survey (closed- results below)


What is your vision for Coeur d’Alene in the year 2040?

We have begun to articulate a vision for the next 20 years as part of the Envision Coeur d’Alene project and this is a key step in the process – to make sure we are capturing the vision and values of our community members for what you want the community to become by the year 2040.  We need your input!


Your input is very important. This framework will serve as a foundation for creating specific actions (developed later in 2020) that will implement the vision and goals organized in six key focus areas. The Envision Coeur d’Alene project will also guide future development and land use decisions.


Please take a few minutes to share your thoughts on the draft vision and goals that have been developed through input from online surveys, a community kickoff meeting, small group discussions with community leaders and representatives from the health, education, development, transportation, recreation and environmental sectors within Coeur d’Alene. This survey is now closed. Results are located below in PDF form.

Thank you for your time and effort in taking available surveys. After each is completed, you will be able to review the results when submitted. You can return later to view the current responses any time. After each survey closes (TBD) it will be archived and available to the public under "Past Engagement Results" below.
