Please Contact House Members and Ask They Vote Against HB 127 on County Planning & Zoning

Posted By Johanna M. Bell, Friday, March 8, 2019

House Bill 127 on county planning and zoning was completely amended a second time and will be up for floor debate and vote in the House soon.  We ask city officials to contact House members and respectfully ask that they oppose House Bill 127a (see current, amended version HERE). 

You can find your legislators HERE.

Planning and zoning exists to prevent conflicting land uses and to protect the value and use of private property. 

House Bill 127, as amended, would lead to increased conflict between property owners, hurting property values and impeding the use and enjoyment of property.

  • Farmers and ranchers depend on county planning and zoning to protect their land from residential subdivisions that find crop spraying, dust and noise objectionable.
  • Rural homeowners depend on county planning and zoning to protect their property from a gravel pit that wants to locate next door and operate 24 hours a day.
  • Manufacturing and commercial facilities need county planning and zoning to ensure that neighboring residential development doesn’t impede their operations.

Cities also depend on county planning and zoning to ensure that areas that are annexed in the future have the required infrastructure necessary for an urban community. 

House Bill 127, as amended, would undermine decades of managed growth in Idaho, leading to increased conflict and uncertainty for property owners.
