Coeur d'Alene is one of few cities out West that has flourished, even during the recession.
Mayor Sandi Bloem in her recent state of the city address lauded city residents, businesses and city employees for their efforts to make it so.
More changes, more excellence, are on the horizon, the mayor said.
Despite the accolades the city received at the hands of Forbes magazine and USA Today - both of which billed the city one of the best places to live for its amenities, cost of living, sparkling vision and natural beauty - the City is pushing the laurels aside and moving ahead to a bright future.
"The culture we live by in our city is guided by that word, excellence," Bloem said. "It's a prevailing attitude."
