Citizens Planning Academy

The C.P.A. is a collaborative project of Idaho Smart Growth and the U of I College of Law in Boise and the U of I Bioregional Planning Program.  This monthly series is designed to help citizens become effective advocates on a wide range of planning topics.  Programs are free and open to all. We have designed the sessions to build on one another so we hope you can join us for them all but they will be videotaped and made available online if you cannot.
