What should the Treasure Valley’s future look like? Survey asks for input

Regence Blue Shield of Idaho

The Community Planning Association of SW Idaho, also known as COMPASS, released a survey to see how residents envision the future. 

The ‘Where do we grow from here?’ Survey is open to all Treasure Valley residents and is broken down into three categories: values, future scenarios and implementation. 

“It’s no secret – Ada and Canyon Counties are growing! COMPASS forecasts there will be 1,075,000 people living in the two counties by the year 2050.” The survey notes on the first page and asks participants to consider: “Where will they live, work, and play?”

The survey features different transportation and development scenarios and asks participants to rate them.

“Do these scenarios reflect your vision for the future of the Treasure Valley? What issues are most important to you?” COMPASS Principal Planner Carl Miller asked.

Each scenario includes different options for housing and transportation in both urban and suburban areas. The survey shows how each scenario will impact affordability, location choice, environmental health, outdoor lifestyle and growth management. 

COMPASS notes that this survey was built around the results from its first survey released last fall
