Minidoka County Community Development Building and Zoning

10-22-096_Minidoka-Logo_01-04-2023
Minidoka County, with the City of Rupert and the City of Paul, have started the process to begin a Comprehensive Plan update. We are currently in the early stages with the Steering Committee who will be tasked with organizing Citizen Advisory Committees (CAC).  Minidoka County, The City Paul and The City Rupert will each organize their own CAC.  The CAC will meet regularly during this process to help with input and guidance of the Plan and will be tasked with helping gather other community input through interviews and other public outreach. If you are interested in being involved please reach our to your local County or City representatives for more information on how you can help and be involved. 


Steering Committee Representatives:
Steering Committee Meetings are scheduled regularly on the second Tuesday of each month during the review process.

Minidoka County - Jared Orton (County Commissioner), Jenny Bateman (Planning and Zoning Board), Lloyd Smith (Planning and Zoning Board)

City of Rupert - Joel Heward (City Council), Roger Davis (City Representative)

City of Paul - Bob Dempsay (Mayor), Brent Browning (City Council), Layne Harper (Planning and Zoning Board)



We will continue to invite you to check here regularly for events and timeline updates as this moves forward. Community involvement and input is key to the success of this process.
