Welcome to the new COMPASS blog!
Welcome to our new blog. I'll be using this site to provide updates on what's happening at COMPASS and to share transportation-related information from around the region and around the country. I encourage you to share your thoughts and comments by participating in a lively (but civil) online conversation about the issues I share here. If you're not already familiar with COMPASS, I suggest you check out our web page at www.compassidaho.org to learn more about who we are and what we do.
Community Planning Association of Southwest Idaho
COMPASS is the designated Metropolitan Planning Organization responsible for transportation planning in Ada and Canyon Counties. The COMPASS Board comprises 39 members representing the cities, counties, highway districts, educational institutions, state agencies, and other entities within the two counties. COMPASS plays an important role in making decisions about future long-range transportation needs in the Treasure Valley, taking into consideration environmental and economic factors that affect the quality of life.
