Citizens Planning Academy – February 2020

Published by Sarah on


Idaho’s Changing Population

Wednesday, February 5th at 6 PM. Free and open to the public.

February 5th is the first of our 2020 Citizens Planning Academy, and we are kicking off a new theme for this year’s series, Idaho’s Changing Landscapes.

Each monthly session will look at a particular “landscape.” Attendees will hear from leaders in the field and learn tools to become more informed and effective.

About the Session:

We have heard that Idaho is one of the fastest growing states in the nation, but what does that mean for Idaho? How will new residents change our state? Are they going to add cars to rush hour? Are they looking for jobs? Will they need seats in our classrooms? Will they create more income for our businesses? Join us on February 5th as Jaap Vos breaks down the demographic details about the changing landscape of Idaho’s population.

Jaap Vos is the program head of the University of Idaho Bioregional Planning and Community Design program and the director of the Urban Design Center in Boise. Prior to joining the University of Idaho, Jaap was director of the planning program for Boise State University.
