Public asked to help shape the future of Bannock County

by | Jan 3, 2024 | Commissioner Press Releases, Highlights, Newsroom

BANNOCK COUNTY, Idaho – People are moving to Idaho, and Bannock County is starting to feel the impacts of that growth.

In planning for the future, Bannock County Planning & Development is asking for your help as we rewrite the 2040 Comprehensive Plan.

“The comprehensive plan is a guiding document that outlines how the county should look and feel over the next 20 years. We need the public to share their thoughts so we can create a future that truly represents our community,” said Tristan Bourquin, Assistant Planning Director for Bannock County.

Bannock County is accepting input now through Feb. 25 so the planning team can complete a new draft by July 2024. The draft will be submitted for public review with an opportunity for a public hearing in the summer.

“We want to give everyone a chance to weigh in on the vision of our community, what areas they think should grow, and what areas they want to preserve,” Bourquin said.

Planning & Development is hosting open houses throughout the community to collect feedback and answer questions about the plan. Those who cannot attend in person are invited to provide feedback online at or by emailing
