KC DEM CLUB: David Callahan, Kootenai County Community Development Director

This is our 2nd in-person Democrat Club meeting. We are excited to welcome David Callahan as our guest. He is the Kootenai County Community Development Director. Community Development oversees the county’s growth plan. David’s job involves determining and managing the county’s zoning and land use regulations. These policies ensure that development, promotes safety, while protecting the open space and natural beauty of Kootenai County.

David CallahanAs an Architect and a member of the American Institute of Certified Planners, David is well suited to guide the Community Development Department. Join us this Friday at noon in person or on Zoom at JB’s Restaurant. Listen to David’s informed perspective on growth and how to manage it. It is not “if we build it, they will come.” Rather, it is whether we build it or not, they are coming. So, we best accept it and plan accordingly to protect the well-being of residents, neighborhoods, and our shared community.

Obviously, we hope to see as many as possible in person. However, if you cannot come to JB’s, we welcome your participation over Zoom. We know that COVID-19 cases are rising again so if you feel at risk, please stay home.

We distribute a Zoom link for our club meeting on the Thursday prior to the meeting date. To request the link or assistance getting connected, contact Phil at pjwmia@aol.com.
