Public Hearing for Nampa City Council District Map December 19

The City of Nampa invites the public to share public testimony on the final map establishing six council districts on Monday, December 19, 2022. Public hearings begin at 6:30 p.m. at Nampa City Hall, located at 411 3rd Street South.

The six Nampa City Council seats are currently elected “at large” by voters within city limits. Beginning in the November 2023 election, Nampa voters will only be allowed to vote for council members in their district, in accordance with Idaho State Code section 50-707A. Nampa City Council seats 2, 4 and 6 are scheduled for election in November 2023. 

Monday’s public hearing and anticipated council vote are the final steps in a nearly year-long process. In order to meet the State of Idaho’s statutory requirements, the City of Nampa formed Nampa’s Districting Committee to draft a map for public comment and recommend a final map for council approval. The committee was comprised of nine Nampa residents from various areas of the city. After review and discussion of several maps, the districting committee held open houses and invited public comment on the proposed map.

In order to meet statutory requirements, the districts must include the following criteria: 

  • The population of each district must be as equal as possible (the population of Nampa according to the last decennial census was 100,200 and this number divided by six is 16,700). 
  • The new districts must keep current voting precincts together. 
  • Precincts in a certain district must be contiguous (or touching).
