                                       Action Plan


Date Submitted: January 31st, 2007
Content of this report contains projected action plan goals for the next five years that will
enhance the quality of living within the Kendrick-Juliaetta community
Our community Gem Team is unique because we have all organizations within our
community planning and working on different projects that they feel are important to
make a difference in our quality of life and economics.
Therefore the “Gem Team” actually communicates with these organizations and
documents the plans that have been made for the Action Plan. There is a listing of active
Gem Team members who were involved in putting this documentation together rather
than taking the full responsibility of making the plans themselves.
We have processed this document to continue Gem Community status with the State of
Idaho Department of Commerce.

Gem Team Action Plan
Meeting dates: November 17th, 2006 KJCDA, Action Plan Meeting
Dec 21st, 2006 KJCDA, General Meeting
Enhance the quality of living within the Kendrick-Juliaetta community through economic
stabilization and diversification.
Community Accomplishments in 2006
The first phase of the Kendrick Park playground has been completed. The old unsafe
equipment has been removed, soft fall has been put down, and the toddler piece of
equipment has been installed. Money is still being raised to purchase the larger piece of
equipment to complete the project.
The Kendrick-Juliaetta brochures have been redesigned and reprinted. A “Showcasing
the Valley” committee was formed which was responsible for content and distribution.
The committee is still intact and is going to be important for how we want to market our
area as a hub of tourism and attractions.
Our community has been selected to participate in the Horizons program to address
poverty in our community. The program is provided by the Northwest Area Foundation
and administered through the University of Idaho extension. The program is fully funded
and has numerous positive implications for our towns. The main focus is poverty, which
is defined by our own citizens input, and leadership training to help our volunteer base
and sense of community. The K-JCDA has agreed to be the steering committee for this
project. Kendrick and Juliaetta have been identified as meeting the basic requirement
threshold for poverty.
In accordance with our strategic planning sessions we have prioritized the following

The addition of an RV Park and Restrooms that are accessible from the Ed Corkill
Memorial trail have been included in the 5 year infrastructure plan and the short term 1
year plan. There are currently no overnight accommodations in the Potlatch River valley
of any kind, including motels/hotels, bed and breakfast, or overnight camping facilities.
With the influx of campers, hunters, and Recreationists that travel through our combined
communities, we feel that it is an opportunity to provide a valuable resource and possibly
generate economic benefit as well.
