Councilman Amy Evans

A community activist with boundless energy and a strong commitment to promoting healthy growth while preserving the quality of life in Coeur d'Alene, Amy Evans has spent countless hours over the years dedicating her talents to a wide variety of local causes.

She served six years on the city's Planning Commission, was an integral part of a team of volunteers who helped save a historic downtown elementary school, and was a key player in a membership drive that attracted more than 16,000 people to the Lake City's Kroc Community Center.

Amy is well known for her tireless efforts on community projects and dedication to education, with two children of her own attending Coeur d'Alene public schools.

"As the founding President of Coeur d'Alene Education Partnership I've provided opportunities for open and vigorous public dialogue over key decisions affecting public education," she says.  "I've strived to ensure that the community is well informed about the issues, challenges, and choices that our education system faces."

She brings that same enthusiasm and focus to the Coeur d'Alene City Council, a position she pursued because of her passion to help shape a vibrant future. Amy is steadfast in her commitment to creating good jobs, supporting a top-rate educational system, and providing optimum recreational opportunities.

"I believe the people of Coeur d'Alene are excited for progress and want positive energy moving our community forward," Amy says.  "It's essential to advance our outstanding quality of life in attracting businesses and families to our city."

Amy is a native of Lewiston, Idaho.  She met her husband, Doug, while attending Idaho State University in Pocatello.  Amy and Doug have been married for 15 years and have two children, Max and Lucy.  She is currently employed as the Development Director with the Idaho Youth Ranch in Coeur d'Alene.
