What is a Comprehensive Plan?
Project management staff have received requests asking, "What is a comprehensive plan?", and, "What is the relationship between the City of Coeur d'Alene and CDA 2030?". Below is a short video explanation. This information was also provided on the FAQ page from the launch of this site. Please visit that page for more information.
Imagine Coeur d’Alene in 20 years...
What is your vision for your community?
Join us on September 26th!
The City of Coeur d’Alene, in partnership with CDA 2030, is hosting a public kick-off and visioning workshop for the Coeur d’Alene Comprehensive Plan. On September 26th, please join us for an evening of community discussion about potential visions and ideas to address future growth in Coeur d’Alene over the next 20 years. The workshop is family friendly and light refreshments will be provided.
Phase 1: Analyze Existing Policies and Conditions
This phase of the project includes review of existing documents for elements that should remain in the updated plan(s). Also, existing conditions for transportation and the region's economic climate will be completed to establish baseline results for future phases.
Phase 2: Visioning
Second, the City and CDA 2030 will produce a clear, validated picture of the city's future embodied by a succinct vision statement. This phase will involve extensive community engagement.
Phase 3: Planning
The third phase is the technical and analytical portion of the project, with consultant MIG focused on researching, modeling, mapping, and analyzing a number of topics including, but not limited to, the following: population growth, environmental sustainability and climate change, hazard mitigation, cultural and historical resources, and economics.
Phase 4: Land Use Modeling, Mapping, and Economic Analysis
Fourth, the City and MIG will explore and develop land use concepts and alternatives based on theory, data, and community preferences. A land use plan (including a land use map) will be developed, and an economic analysis will be performed on that plan.
Phase 5: Refinement
A draft citywide plan will be presented to the community, and ultimately the City Council and CDA 2030 Board of Directors, for review and approval.
Approval and Publication
The final plan is scheduled to be approved and published by December 31, 2020.
Envision Coeur d’Alene Implementation
Following completion and approval of the Comprehensive Plan update, implementation begins January 2021.
