Big Amazon project in Nampa put on hold

“Project Bronco,” which evidence overwhelmingly indicates is a new Amazon distribution center – is on hold.

The City of Nampa put out a news release on behalf of the private businesses behind the project. It attributed this statement to the project’s developer, but didn’t name a person behind the quote:

“There are a variety of factors that we take into account when deciding to launch a facility – and we’ve found all of those in Nampa, Idaho and surrounding communities. The only thing that has changed with our plans is the exact timing. We are a dynamic business and it’s common for us to adjust launch timetables based on business needs. We look forward to continuing our work in the great City of Nampa, Idaho.”

The project hit a patch of ice this week when outgoing Meridian Mayor Tammy de Weerd expressed concerns about the project, according to the Idaho Statesman. The project is in Nampa and Canyon County but increased traffic could have a significant impact on infrastructure in Meridian and Ada County.

The release does not say how long the project will be on hold. Project developers are notoriously tight-lipped (they won’t admit it’s Amazon even though, well, it very likely is).

“The developer and Project Bronco team has (sic) been excellent to work with and we look forward to the successful launch and completion of this important project,” Nampa Mayor Debbie Kling said in a prepared statement. “We will continue our collaboration with the various agencies involved in bringing this project to fruition.”
