GREATER COEUR D'ALENE AREA
GOVERNMENT/PUBLIC EDUCATION CHANNEL
The mission of CDA TV is to enhance the community's public information and communications system, involve the community in local government decision making, and provide useful local government/public education information to general and specialized audiences.
In 2004, the City of Coeur d'Alene renegotiated its franchise agreement with Adelphia (now Time Warner Cable). Part of that agreement was the creation of the City's government/public education channel, CDATV Channel 19.
In January 2005, the City aired the first live City Council meeting. Additionally, the City Bulletin Board began airing at the same time. Since then, the City has added the airing of the Planning Commission meetings, Parks & Recreation Commission meetings, as well as the Lake City Development Corporation meetings. The Bulletin Board has expanded to include Upcoming Events and Community Connections.
