Coordinated Growth Process
Coordinated growth is not an effort with a specific beginning and end, but represents the underlying strategic objective that guides the application of resources, operations & staffing of the Development Services Department. For all growth-related projects identified, we start with the following goals in mind:
- Be fiscally responsible
- Lead by example
- Be proactive
These guiding values then go through the same process. We start by garnering support for the action from necessary agencies and interested parties, then work with them to devise an action plan. Once the plan is implemented, we continuously review, revisit, and revise to ensure we are meeting the goals above.
We are working on a series of projects that will address some of the concerns that have been raised regarding growth in Ada County. Keep an eye out for additional announcements regarding open houses and public hearings that will be held in association with these projects. If you are interested in staying in the know about these projects and their events, please subscribe for updates.
Some of the projects we are working on include:
Education and Communication
Ada County is looking for and working with a multitude of agencies to develop an education series to ensure we all understand the issues and are speaking the same language. We are committed to working alongside community partners like the cities, ACHD, local schools and universities, and more to be transparent, responsive, and proactive as growth continues to come to Ada County.
We are also working on improving our communication and education by providing additional resources online and on social media. Our department can be found on the following social media platforms:
