In a first of its kind Town Hall, Commissioner Mattare, Airport Director Gaston Patterson and the Chairman of the Airport Advisory Board Brian Cleary will discuss the future of our local airport and how it will affect your community. Join us on January 9, 2024, at 6 PM for a lively discussion and get answers to the following questions:

  • Why the airport needs a tower now – and how it can actually reduce noise for surrounding residents

  • Whether our airport should maintain its current Part 139 Certification for commercial service and what it means for your taxes

  • Should we ever compete with Spokane International Airport and under what circumstances

  • Does it make sense for United, Delta or Southwest to ever come to Coeur d’Alene airport

  • How the airport can engage the community more

  • What role the airport plays with employment and helping to make the community resilient to economic downturns

  • And much more.

  • Seating is limited and the event will be video recorded if you cannot make it. We look forward to seeing you there.

  • How much of your property taxes are spent on justice services and what county leaders are trying to do to keep them low.

  • The single biggest factor behind a rising crime rate and how it affects your property taxes.

  • And much more.
