It is hard not to notice the rapid pace of development and growth in Kootenai County. The reason is simple, Idaho’s population is growing quickly, and Kootenai County is not exempt. In fact, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, Idaho has led the other forty-nine states and Washington, D.C., in percent increase of growth for the fifth consecutive year. To help us assess the implications that this population expansion presents, we have asked Gynii Gilliam to join us. Ms. Gilliam is the President of the Coeur d’Alene Area Economic Development Corporation (CdAEDC).
Join us this Friday at noon online for a look at the challenges and opportunities presented by our rapid population growth.
