Looking Ahead in 2022

From January 19 through 21, the board engaged in its annual workshop to review progress on its prior year objectives and establish objectives for the new year. So many great things came out of the workshop, so I’ll just highlight a few:

  •  Recreation has been added as a board priority for the first time ever. 
  • County staff has identified several potential improvements to the cannabis ordinance and enforcement. 
  • We had a productive conversation around abatement timelines for code enforcement, and how we might be able to shorten them. 
  • We will be exploring an interesting option for reducing electricity bills for county residents. 
  • County staff will be looking at developing separate septic guidelines for accessory dwelling units. 

And there are a few other exciting things to look forward to this year: All the community partners who received Community Resiliency Grants at the end of last year will start implementing projects with their new funds. And more housing projects will be completed, including Cashin’s Field and Brunswick Commons. 

Finally, the draft environmental impact report for the Idaho Maryland Mine (the Rise Gold mine) mine proposal has been released for public comments. In-person verbal comments can be provided at 9:30 am on February 23 in the board chamber at the Rood Center. Written comments can be provided until March 4, 2022. Visit the link above for more information on the environmental review documents and process timeline, how to provide comment and more.
