CDA 2030


Message from Board Chair Jimmy McAndrew

I hope this message finds you healthy and, considering the circumstances, with your chin up.  Just like you, in the last few months, CDA 2030 has found itself navigating through it’s mission via teleconferences, video meetings and connecting with the community that we serve as best we can.  We are in uncharted territory, and learning to adapt-yet optimistic that we will be stronger on the other side.  There is no doubt that this pandemic has impacted our communities and businesses greatly and we will need to  continue to help and support one another as we adapt to a new normal.   There is still much that is unknown ahead of us,  but I believe we should plan forward in a calm and measured way.  We will need to be ready to exhibit the flexibility, problem solving, and grace that has guided us to this point.  All that said, I’m so thankful because there isn’t a more generous or genuine community to be part of and CDA 2030 continues in it’s mission to benefit all of us that are fortunate to live, work, learn and play here.

Our Gem Lake Coeur d'Alene

You Can Support Lake Health!

CDA 2030 is proud to contribute to the Our Gem Coeur d’Alene Lake Collaborative - a team of committed and passionate professionals working to protect our local water resources. These partners invest in efforts to provide educational programs concentrated on the health of Coeur d’Alene Lake and the Spokane River.

The Our Gem Collaborative team regularly contributes data-driven articles to the Coeur d’Alene Press to promote dialogue and community action in caring for Coeur d’Alene Lake.

Did you know? 

  • In the southern half of Coeur d’Alene, stormwater primarily flows through catch basins and an underground pipe network into Coeur d’Alene Lake or the Spokane River, untreated.
  • Even if you don’t live on or near the waterfront, it’s possible that runoff from your property enters storm drains that dump directly to the lake.
  • Roughly 3,700 square miles of land area ultimately drains into Coeur d’Alene Lake.
