Press-Tribune: Coalition Rips Canyon County For Not Including Map in Comprehensive Plan



A coalition of Canyon County agricultural interests is publicly criticizng a master plan for their county, saying the blueprint is missing something: a map with an official connection to the plan.

This morning's Idaho Press-Tribune reports that a letter from the Coalition for Agriculture's Future was fired off to Canyon County commissioners reminding them that their comprehensive plan requires a map that shows suitable future land use but "no such map exists."

“The absence of such a map renders a comprehensive plan, and any zoning ordinances adopted under the plan, invalid,” says the letter, crafted by an attorney for the CAF.

Late Friday, Canyon County commissioners responded by saying they would "carefully review the claims."

"After we identify or confirm what the issue is, we’ll be able to develop an action plan to address it," wrote the commssioners.
