expanding higher education
In the past, getting in and out of the North Idaho College campus could prove to be a major headache with only one option for motorists. Today, with two beautifully designed access points, traffic flow and safety have significantly improved as part of the Higher Education Campus development project. Ignite cda assisted in the installation of necessary infrastructure upgrades such as sewer, water and fiber optic lines, a vastly improved road network with signalized intersection and financing attractive public art.
There is also plenty of space for multi-institution growth—an enormous economic benefit for the community. The Higher Education Campus is a unique partnership between the city of Coeur d’Alene, ignite cda, North Idaho College, University of Idaho, and Lewis-Clark State College. These entities share a vision to create a collaborative higher education environment to provide higher academic opportunities and a positive economic impact for residents of North Idaho. It attracts bright students. It’s provides jobs. And graduates prove to be a strong asset to our local workforce.
