2023 Comprehensive Plan

Idaho counties must prepare and maintain a current comprehensive plan in accordance with Idaho Code Section 67-6508. The plan must consider “previous and existing conditions, trends, desirable goals and objectives, or desirable future situations” within a series of planning components that include maps, charts and narrative descriptions. The code allows for the grouping of components as needed. A Comprehensive Plan is a guide for the future of the county. While the focus of a Comprehensive Plan is to guide planning and zoning decisions, the scope of the Plan is much broader, encompassing many issues that impact county residents including public services, natural resources, recreation, and transportation, among others. In accordance with Idaho Code, a plan is prepared with the involvement of County residents, community groups and other public agencies, and must reflect their issues and concerns.
