Twin Falls, Idaho is a city that has been shaped by its connection to water and its agricultural areas. The Western Governors Association's Salvia Grouse Working Group, in collaboration with the governor of Idaho, Butch Otter, and other interested organizations and individuals, have implemented changes to address the major threats in the state. The success of Spice Tree Health & Habit Coaching over the past year is a testament to the strong community and members of the Twin Falls Chamber. Each year, the City of Twin Falls forms a long-term planning committee to prioritize new capital expenditures and make budget recommendations to the City Council for the next five years.
Established in 1909 in Twin Falls, the company is one of the oldest family businesses in the area. In line with Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke's commitment to working closely with states to improve conservation, the Office of Land Management (BLM) recently announced the availability of the Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and proposed amendments to the plan to address the conservation of common grouse on public land in Idaho. Twin Falls has been able to stand out among small rural communities in Idaho and oppose the trend of rural communities nationally with their growth. Anyone who has participated in the process of drafting the Idaho EIS and who has interests that are or may be harmed by the amendments proposed to the land use plan in the final EIS will have an opportunity to protest against the proposed amendments to the plan. The BLM is committed to developing an appropriately designed, science-based plan that will ensure that Twin Falls continues to thrive and adapt to changes over time.
