Comprehensive Plan Update

Ada County, Idaho

Matt Hastie oversaw preparation of a major overhaul of the Comprehensive Plan, along with creation of a County-wide Park and Recreation Plan, as well as a Sub-Area Plan for the North Foothills area north of Boise, including preparation of new development concepts and standards.  The project involved updating all aspects of the Comprehensive Plan and extensive coordination with other local jurisdictions, other local service providers, state and federal agencies, community groups and the general public.  Tasks included research and analysis; evaluation of land use scenarios using CommunityViz software; preparing GIS maps, informational materials, associated reports and plans; and assisting with adoption efforts.

Planning issues included the transition between urban and rural issues, siting of new “destination communities,” protection of scenic views and other key resources, and significant intergovernmental coordination needs.  The project entailed an extensive public involvement effort,  including three sets of community-wide public meetings, public meetings for the sub-area planning process, focus groups, multiple community surveys and meetings of a Steering Committee meetings three different Technical Advisory Committees.
