IT'S TIME FOR A NEW COUNTY COMPREHENSIVE PLAN!!
Payette County last adopted a Comprehensive Plan in 2006 and, with a few modifications over the years, it has served the County well. However, a lot has changed in the past 14 years and we’d like you to join us in a new planning process.
What is a Comprehensive Plan?
Think of a comprehensive plan as a 10 – 20-year roadmap for the future of our 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. A plan is prepared with the involvement of county residents, community groups and other public agencies, and must reflect their issues and concerns. The best Comprehensive Plan will address topics that extend beyond the planning and zoning functions and address areas of concern to the County government and all County residents and visitors.
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 numerous planning components (such as, land use, natural resources, recreation, hazardous areas etc.).
