What will the Treasure Valley’s future look like? Planning agency wants your vision

The Community Planning Association of SW Idaho (which calls itself COMPASS) launched a new survey to gauge views on the future of the Treasure Valley.

The Driving the Future:2050 survey asks questions around housing, transportation and activities, and is open to Treasure Valley residents.

“Help plan for the future of the Treasure Valley. Please take 5 minutes to tell us how you see life changing over the next 5, 10, or even 30 years,” the survey notes.

Questions delve into preferred housing types – asking if people prefer tight urban housing, large lots or shades in between. It also askes what types of factors go into choosing housing, like housing prices, transportation costs or availability of water.

For transportation, the survey gauges views on what residents see as viable modes of transit in the future – including bus, rail, single-passenger vehicles and more.
