Mayor Bob Henry is seeking applications from residents interested in serving on Nampa’s urban renewal agency, the Nampa Development Corp. The deadline to apply is noon Friday.

As part of the legislation to tighten urban renewal laws, the Idaho Legislature last year adopted a new statute requiring that the commission have more private citizens than city council members. Currently, the six Nampa City Council members make up the NDC board.

The Nampa City Council recently decided that the commission will have five members – two city council members and three citizens. The citizens are not required to live in Nampa, but must live in Canyon County. City urban renewal agencies impact all property taxpayers in Canyon County and therefore have a right to serve on the commission.

The mayor makes the appointments, but the Nampa City Council must affirm them.

Interested applicants must have lived in Canyon County for at least 30 days and be at least 18 years of age. The deadline to apply is noon Friday. Interested applicants must answer the following questions and send them to: mayor@cityofnampa.us or drop them off at the Mayor’s Office at Nampa City Hall.

The questions are as follows:

  • Name:
  • Address:
  • Email:
  • Phone number:
  • How long have you lived in Canyon County?
  • What is your current or most recent employment?
  • Why do you want to serve on the Nampa Development Corporation?
  • What is your philosophy when it comes to urban renewal agencies?

NDC members meet monthly for about an hour on the third Wednesday at 3 p.m. at City Hall.

There is no payment for serving on the commission. Terms are for five years, however, the length of terms will be staggered in the beginning.
