NAMPA, Idaho — The Nampa City Council voted March 28 to postpone public hearings at Nampa City Council and Planning and Zoning Commission meetings effective immediately and for the duration of the State of Idaho’s statewide stay-at-home order.
When the stay-home order is lifted, the city will reschedule public hearings. The City of Nampa will hold additional meetings to quickly work through the public hearing backlog created due to the impact of the coronavirus.
Applicants who have previously scheduled public hearings will be contacted by City of Nampa staff.
