Growth Planning Based on Community Values with Elaine Clegg

Growth Planning Based on Community Values with Elaine Clegg In-Person

Part of the 2022 Thinking Globally Acting Locally Speaker Series, presented by the Wood River Land Trust and The Community Library.

Elaine Clegg is the Program Director for Idaho Smart Growth. An Idaho native, she has been an activist in growth management issues in the Boise area since 1984, including serving as neighborhood association board member and president, and now as a Boise City council member.

One of Elaine’s passions is rooting growth discussions in community values. Elaine has been working throughout Idaho to lead community based placemaking charettes that have led to transit master plans in places like Sandpoint, downtown revitalization plans in Idaho Falls, and area of city impact plans across Idaho.  

In this talk, Elaine will discuss how the communities of the Wood River Valley can start to find common ground based on shared values.  She will describe how identifying widespread values across the valley can build a shared foundation for all communities to come to the table over.  

As Idaho continues to experience unprecedented growth, now is the time to give voice to what makes the Wood River Valley so special, and how we can accommodate growth without undermining the fundamental elements that create the home we all love.  

Elaine will lead a robust discussion on values mapping with lots of opportunity for input from the audience.  This is an opportunity to learn from each other about our common values – there might be surprises but we hope to find lots of overlapping common ground. This presentation will be a robust conversation between Keri York, Lands Program Director for the Wood River Land Trust, and the community.  Your voice is what will make this evening a success, so please come, and bring a friend!
