Nampa City Council will hold a public hearing on proposed changes to Nampa’s Area of City Impact on Monday, May 16 at 7 p.m. in City Hall Council Chambers, 411 3rd St. S. Nampa. The area of impact boundary is negotiated between Nampa, Caldwell and Canyon County with hearings at each jurisdiction.

Nampa and Caldwell have been in agreement on the proposed Area of City Impact boundary expansions for several years. During the last year Nampa and Caldwell identified small areas where the existing boundary splits parcels or could be better served if it were in the opposite city’s impact area. The public hearing will consider long standing expansion areas and recent small adjustment areas.

“Areas of city impact provide a way for cities, counties and special districts to plan for future needs and coordinate land use plans,” said Norm Holm, planning director. “As Nampa and Caldwell continue to grow, it is critical that long term plans for transportation, water, sewer and other services account for growth outside city boundaries. Residents and property owners residing in the area of impact remain under county jurisdiction without changes to taxation or services.”

Public hearings have already been held at Nampa, Caldwell and Canyon County’s Planning and Zoning Commissions. The final hearing will be at the Canyon County Board of Commissioners. If approved, the new boundary ordinance will be enacted by Canyon County.

A map detailing the proposed boundary changes is attached.
