There are many ways to get involved with the future of Sandpoint. A great start is to be informed about what is going on. City Council has regular meetings on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month at 5:30 PM, in the Council chambers. If you can't make it to the meeting a live web stream is available to watch. You can also sign up for eNotifications to have calendar and news items sent to your inbox. Council and committee meeting minutes are also available to review.
If you are ready to take on a more hands on approach you should volunteer and join an advisory committee. Advisory committees are formed to provide research, study, discussion and recommendations on specific issues or a scope of issues as requested by City Council. They also provide an opportunity for citizens to actively participate in the decision-making process, which is a critical element for an open and responsive government. These committees add great value to our efforts to provide efficient and effective governance.
There are many local civic organizations that would love your participation.
Bonner County has many councils and committees available to participate in as well.
Idaho@Play is a state wide initiative which brings AmeriCorps members and community volunteers together to promote play as a way to combat childhood obesity.
Below is a list of events that you can get involved with:
