Creating a Stronger Community

As I get older, I realize that I can’t just “live” in my space.  I feel the pull to create a better world for those around me; especially those that come after.  When we strive to create vibrant, healthy, and financially viable communities it is better for everyone.

Coeur d’Alene is already doing a pretty good job, but there is always room for improvement. Let’s start to put PEOPLE first in everything we do.

We need to create a community that is safe for all people. Whether you are a person walking, biking, taking public transit, are a disabled individual, or driving.

Let’s create public spaces filled with local artists works, greenery, and where people want to be. Not more concrete superhighways.

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart. — Helen Keller

For a community to be whole and healthy must be based on people’s love and concern for each other — Millard Fuller
