Hello Treasure Valley!
Ada and Canyon County have a little separation between the two with Nampa and Meridian, but we can see through growth and activity that they’re going to touch here soon. My prediction is within five to seven years you’re going to have no defined line basically there anymore with that activity. You can see that growth just on 10-mile road. Scheels Sporting Goods store is going in right there and then all the growth that’s happening on that exit with the new freeway coming in just an exit down.
You’re going to see that growth between Nampa and Meridian just slowly growing into each other. Star is also going to continue to grow. So you can’t deny the growth that’s happening here in the Treasure Valley and I think that’s going to keep going. And yes, get the roads caught up, get some other stuff going. I know some people are negative on that. But growth is inevitable. It’s making sure you have correct structure in that growth. You know, they’re still putting the schools in, they’re still doing the infrastructure around it. Of course, it would be a little better if there’s a lot more road action going. But it is what it is. I mean that’s just the norm now. We better be getting used to it. Just go out a little bit earlier to try to get places. That’s all we can go through and do. But growth is here, and I think it will continue to go through on the I-84 corridor. We’ll continue to keep expanding and I see a lot of positive activity going on and happening there.
