Take a look at how the pandemic, a mass flight from cities and problems with labor and supply shortages and rapidly escalating costs have affected the quality of place in Sun Valley when the Sun Valley Economic Development holds its annual economic summit on Wednesday, Nov. 9 at Sun Valley Resort.

The event kicks off with registration and coffee at 8 a.m. followed by a brief introduction in the Sun Valley Inn Limelight Room.

“Quality of Place Revisited” will kick off at 8:45 a.m. followed by a panel discussion looking at the new quality of place in relation to the environment.

A panel discussion on “Challenges & Opportunities for Quality of Place” will follow at 10:30 a.m., followed by a penal discussion on “Newcomer Businesses: Buy, Build, Bring or Borrow” at 11:30 a.m. After lunch, which will be provided, Jaap Vos, professor of the University of Idaho will make the keynote address.

Vos, professor of Planning and Natural Resources and interim director of the Environmental Science Program, has a Ph.D. in regional planning from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign and a MS in Environmental Science from Wageningen University in the Netherlands.

His current research is focused on how rural places can maintain their unique character in the face of development pressure.
