We Want to Hear from You!
We have launched our first of several community surveys to learn more from you about your vision for Sandpoint 20 years into the future.
Airport Area Visioning & Choices Workshop, Thursday Nov. 14, 10am-4pm, Granite Aviation - 1100 Airport Way
As part of our Comprehensive Plan Update, you are invited to drop in anytime between 10-4pm at 1100 Airport Way and learn more about Sandpoint Airport, its importance to our community, and its vision for the future. Share your perspectives over cider and donuts, and discuss ways to ensure the airport's long-term vision is achieved in a way that is compatible with the community's broader vision. Kids are welcome, too, and will have the chance to have their photos taken while sitting in a Cessna 172 airplane!

Why Should You Be Involved?
A Comprehensive Plan is the legal basis for major decisions such as zoning regulations*, answering questions such as:
Where should different housing types be allowed?
Where should a grocery store go? How about a car dealership?
What is most valued about Sandpoint?
What are the major concerns for the future of Sandpoint?
*Zoning Regulations determine for an area what uses are allowed and by what standards such as height limits, setbacks and design standards.
