The Atlas Waterfront Project's website section regarding environmental review of the property has been updated to reflect the City's participation in the Idaho Department of Environmental Quality's Brownfield's Assessment Program and the work done to date thanks to grant funding from DEQ.

The City of Coeur d’Alene and CDA 2030 are inviting a diverse array of community organizations to share their thoughts on the Atlas Waterfront Project as a first step to assess the property’s potential.
The community input process begins with a Community Organization Representative (COR) Vision meeting planned for February 2018. The COR Vision meeting will be facilitated by non-profit community organization CDA 2030. Groups are being identified based on themes within CDA 2030’s Community Vision document. Those identified so far are listed at cdaid.org/atlaswaterfront.
A new page has been placed on the Atlas Waterfront Project website section related to the COR Vision Group, its mission, a copy of the invitation, and the list of community groups identified to date.
A press release was issued discussing this initial community input process and noting that future communitywide public meetings will also be held.
