Frequently Requested Information  Mission
Our Mission is to make a safe, vibrant and economically sustainable community through wise growth management, including the use of smart growth principles based on Idaho Law, Nampa’s Comprehensive Plan and Zoning Ordinance, and best planning practices. 
Our Vision is to guide the use and development of land to support the health, safety and welfare of our citizens. We believe in being open with all parties, in reviewing development proposals for consistency with the Comprehensive Plan, in complying with State and City zoning law, and in processing application requests thoroughly and impartially.
  • Annually review and amend the zoning and subdivision ordinances, and the comprehensive plan with emphasis on updates to promote smart growth.
  • Advise the public, Planning and Zoning Commission, MayorCity Council and department heads in planning & zoning matters.
  • Coordinate and strengthen relationships with Canyon County in their planning and zoning efforts within the Nampa Area of City Impact.
  • Assist in downtown revitalization efforts through participating in ongoing planning for the area.
  • Assist in the economic and community development activities of the City of Nampa in every way possible.
