Photographer Jerome A. Pollos of the Coeur d'Alene Press snapped this photo of McEuen Field last May. McEuen, of course, is undergoing a total overhaul, which should be complete by this fall.

What would you like Coeur d'Alene to look like in 2030? Backing up a bit, would you be willing to begin that discussion? That's what the city of Coeur d'Alene wants to know - whether the community would be interested in sitting down at the planning table to envision how Coeur d'Alene should look by 2030. Growth may be inevitable, so what should be emphasized or promoted? What should be avoided? And is the timing even right to launch such a discussion? Many questions - with as many answers. "It definitely is an opportunity for people, who might disagree on some items, to sit down and talk about what they want for the future of Coeur d'Alene," said Mike Gridley, city attorney who pitched the idea after visiting Bend, Ore., where the "Bend 2030" vision was adopted in 2005. "The more inclusive this process is, the better. It will fail if it's not a broad, inclusive process"/Tom Hasslinger, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: What would you like to see in Coeur d'Alene by 2030, that isn't planned now?
