Preventing the Devastating Impacts of Growth @ The Community Library Livestream
6:00 pm
Idaho is the fastest-growing state in the country. A famous quote credited to Lou Holtz says, “In this world you’re either growing or you’re dying.” But too much growth can also have the same effect. Growth, while essential for a vibrant and prosperous community, can also have devastating impacts on our environment and the way of life we enjoy here in the Wood River Valley. In collaboration with the Wood River Land Trust as part of its “Thinking Globally, Acting Locally Speaker Series,” The Community Library welcomes Shawn Hill, Executive Director of the Valley Advocates for Responsible Development in Idaho’s Teton Valley. Shawn will discuss regional planning and how to forge a vibrant future. Shawn Hill has been working across state, city, and county lines to tackle these challenges of growth head-on. One of the projects that he has overseen is a large master plan for the Teton Valley that was completed in 2014. The Teton View Regional Plan is a strategy and plan for a four-county, seven-city region that straddles two states, and is adjacent to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. Its implementation relies upon initiatives of regional governments, nonprofits, businesses, and individuals. Shawn will discuss the key ...
