The Planning Division works with the Planning & Zoning Commission, Board of Adjustment, and City Council to administer the Zoning Ordinance and Subdivision Ordinance. The Planning Division assists the Planning & Zoning Commission to prepare and implement the Comprehensive Plan, a general guide for future growth and development of the city adopted by the Mayor and City Council. Our goal is to assist elected decision makers in the development of a plan for the city's future which reflects the vision, needs and values of the citizens of Idaho Falls.

The following link provides a dashboard which dives further into these topics through an interactive data-driven experience: Social and Economic Profile Dashboard
