Canyon Highway District No. 4 (CHD4) is engaged with local, regional, and state transportation agencies to develop near- and long-term planning efforts to improve your transportation network, and provide for future transportation needs.
Caldwell Area Transportation Plan ("CATS Plan")
CHD4 and the City of Caldwell are engaged in a regional planning study of the existing and future transportation system in the greater Caldwell Area. This plan will identify current system capacities and needs, and needs for the area out to 2050. The study will produce a Master Transportation Plan for the City of Caldwell, a Captital Improvement Plan (project list for projected traffic improvements out to 2050), and develop a traffic impact fee to fund improvements required to support new growth and development.
Help plan the transportation system in the Caldwell area. The City of Caldwell and Canyon Highway District No. 4 (CHD4) are looking for public feedback to improve the transportation system. Please use the online comment map to provide feedback:
Public comment is open from April 11, 2022 through May 11, 2022
Canyon County Functional Classification Map
The Functional Classification Map adopted by Canyon County as part of its Comprehensive Plan describes the future intended function of both existing and proposed highways. This map is located on the Canyon County Development Services website, and was adopted in 2012.
Community Planning Association of Southwest Idaho (COMPASS)
The Community Planning Association of Southwest Idaho (COMPASS) is an association of local governments working together to plan for the future of Ada and Canyon Counties. The agency conducts this work as the metropolitan planning organization (MPO) for the two-county area. The federal government requires the formation of an MPO when an urban area reaches 50,000 people. COMPASS has served as the MPO for northern Ada County (Boise area) since 1977 and for Canyon County (Nampa area) since early 2003. Northern Ada County became a “Transportation Management Area” when the population reached 200,000. This designation includes additional requirements for COMPASS to satisfy federal regulations, but also entitles the region to federal funds set aside for large urban areas.
