The planning association known as COMPASS asked Ada and Canyon County residents in June for their feedback on how the Treasure Valley should grow. The survey asked for feedback on four different growth scenarios on how the valley should grow to the year 2050.

"The feedback we got was great," said Carl Miller, Principal Planner for COMPASS. "It will lead towards developing a regional vision for growth, and with that vision for growth we'll also have transportation projects and studies to help us achieve that vision."

When presented with four alternatives "scenarios" of how Ada and Canyon Counties could grow. The "ticket to ride" scenario featuring rail service between Boise and Caldwell and a mix of housing options was the most popular.

All results of the survey can be found on the COMPASS website under the "hot topics" section.
