Member Sought for Trail of Coeur d’Alenes Commission
COEUR D’ALENE - The Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation (IDPR) is looking for an individual to serve as a Commissioner on the six-member Trail of the Coeur d’Alenes, “Trail Commission”.
The purpose of the Trail Commission is to ensure that all aspects of the development, funding, management and operation of the right of way and trail are coordinated across separate and joint management areas, consistent with implementation of the Agreement between the state of Idaho, (IDPR) and the Coeur d’Alene Tribe.
The Trail Commission will, as necessary, review, modify and adapt the General Management Principles and Operating Guidelines to meet the management and operating requirements of trail managers. Changes may include, but are not limited to, design standards for public access, permitted uses and fees, interpretation, promotion of economic benefits, support for appropriate cultural and historical values and other matters which affect the overall character of the trail and right of way.
The Trail Commission will meet as needed and at least twice annually.
Commission members must reside in the State of Idaho, be willing to actively participate in Trail of the Coeur d’Alenes’ activities and enter into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to serve for the term of appointment. If a member of an organization or club, the commission member must report back to that organization or club on the activities and actions of the commission, and solicit input and suggestions to be brought to the full commission.
The at-large member will be approved by IDPR’s Board and will serve a term of two (2) years. No Commission at-large member may serve more than two (2) consecutive terms.
Individuals interested in becoming an at-large member must complete an application and return it by July 1, 2013 to the Old Mission/Trail of the Coeur d’Alenes State Park Office located in Cataldo, Idaho, or the IDPR North Region Service Center located at 2885 Kathleen Avenue, Suite 1, Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.
