What we’re up to in 2020
In addition to our day to day processing of applications, permits, inspections, plats, etc, Development Services is involved in a variety of large projects across the county. Here are some of the projects we have going on this year:
Development Services, under the direction of the Commissioners, is working to understand the impacts of growth in Ada County. We met with various neighborhood groups and business organizations across the valley to better understand the community’s perspectives on growth. Now, we are focusing our efforts on identifying and working on projects that will help us grow in a fiscally responsible way.
The Capital Investment Program (CIP) is an ongoing, collaborative process that receives and reviews public facility service needs from various county departments and offices for the next fiscal year. The County has established a Transformation Board, which serves in an advisory capacity to the Board of County Commissioners as they make final decisions on the CIP during the annual budget process.
Historic Preservation Grant
The Ada County Historic Preservation Council, which serves in an advisory role to the Board of County Commissioners with support from Development Services staff, has been awarded a CLG (Certified Local Government) Grant to conduct a reconnaissance survey to identify potential farmhouses and barns in the Kuna area that could be listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
