Nampa area continues to see growth

 

Continued population growth in Idaho has led to a boost in housing and commercial development in Nampa.

Local officials discussed how this is affecting Nampa and the rest of the Treasure Valley at an economic forum hosted by the Nampa Chamber of Commerce Wednesday.

The Idaho Press reports, the city’s population — now at about 102,000 — has grown 3.7% since 2018. Over the past five years, growth has remained steady at about 3.8% annually.

The number of jobs in Nampa is growing at an even faster rate. Nampa’s employment growth is at 5.4%.

There has also been a jump in multifamily units, with nearly 500 new units built in 2019.
