Educational Talks from Community Planning Association of Southwest Idaho (COMPASS)

The Community Planning Association of Southwest Idaho (COMPASS) has scheduled a series of educational presentations which are open to the public. The sessions range from transportation issues to city and regional planning. Each session is led by a nationally recognized expert in the field. As a member of the Public Participation Committee for Compass, I wanted to get the word out. There are some great sessions planned.
