Idaho Amends Comprehensive Plan Statute

Comprehensive plans in Idaho must now include an analysis of the agricultural base of the area including agricultural lands, farming activities, farming-related businesses and the role of agriculture and agricultural uses in the community. The amended law also requires that the municipal governing board analyze proposed changes to zoning ordinances to ensure that they are not in conflict with the policies of the adopted comprehensive plan. Further, with respect to special use permits, counties and cities are encouraged to provide notice of public hearing by means of their public websites if they have one.

Ch. 89 of the Idaho Laws of 2011 (H.B. 148)
