Density and Residential Code Changes


The Planning & Zoning Department has been actively working to update and enhance the zoning code related to residential development in response to the 2040 Comprehensive Plan – Adopted March 2, 2020. Community input related to the types of housing and amenities desired in Nampa is extremely valuable and will help inform future recommendations and decisions. The community is invited to review current standards and guidelines before taking our Residential Development Survey

The City is working with the development community to produce these recommendations and code changes for presentation to an Advisory Group, Planning & Zoning Commission and City Council for adoption.

The following links to be published after each meeting will include an accounting of the process undertaken to develop these recommendations:
