This Friday we welcome Kerry Brooks for a conversation about smart ways to manage our area’s inevitable growth. Kerry is a Professor of Urban and Regional Planning at Eastern Washington University. He will discuss the impacts of uncontrolled expansion and recommend some approaches to restraining it.
The fact is that growth is unavoidable in Kootenai County. Furthermore, the beauty and livability of this area is no longer a secret and people want to live here. Therefore, the question is how to optimize land use in such a way that it fosters sustainable growth and protects our quality of life. Hopefully, with Kerry’s help we can find workable solutions to this inevitable problem.
We distribute the link to our meetings on the Thursday prior to the meeting date. To request the link or assistance getting connected, contact Phil at firstname.lastname@example.org.
