In 2012 Sandpoint Urban Renewal Agency played an important role in bringing North Idaho Community College to Sandpoint.  Previously located in Ponderay, the Sandpoint campus expanded and moved its location to the Sandpoint Events Center, a beautiful building which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, located at the corner of Pine and Euclid.  Sandpoint Urban Renewal Agency committed $40,000 per year for a period of four years to assist with the cost of rent for the property.

In early 2013, North Idaho College Foundation began a fundraising campaign to bring a wet science lab to the Sandpoint campus.  The establishment of a lab at the Sandpoint campus not only will allow residents to complete a lab science requirement in Sandpoint, but also was the final step which allows students to complete a two year degree without having to travel to Coeur d’Alene to take one or more classes.  The total cost of the lab is $100,000.  As of March 5th, the Foundation had raised just over $70,000 with efforts ongoing.  At its March 2013 meeting, Sandpoint Urban Renewal Agency agreed to fund any shortfall North Idaho College Foundation has to reach its goal by the end of April 2013.  This will enable North Idaho College to begin offering science courses at the Sandpoint campus beginning in fall of 2013.
