2021 COMPREHENSIVE PLAN PURPOSE:
There are several specific purposes achieved by adoption of the City of Victor Comprehensive Plan :
▶To meet the requirements of the Local Land Use Planning Act, Idaho Code, Title 67, Chapter 65;
▶To identify a comprehensive and community-supported, long-range vision for the City of Victor, looking out 10 – 20 years;
▶To guide land use goals, policies, general location, character, and extent of desired future uses within the community;
▶To help evaluate and prioritize future city actions and land development.
The Comprehensive Plan is meant to articulate a vision for the future, and guide both public and private decisions. The plan is meant to direct future public infrastructure investments, and underpin future adjustments in the zoning map, bringing this map in accord with the future land use and transportation elements of this Comprehensive Plan .
2021 TRANSPORTATION PLAN PURPOSE:
The purpose of the Victor Transportation Plan is to engage the public in envisioning a transportation future that supports the Comprehensive Plan goals and objectives so that Victor is able to act strategically when partnerships and funding opportunities become available. The Victor Transportation Plan discusses the routine maintenance needed to keep Victor moving, the improvements that will address Victor’s current needs, and the long-term opportunities that Victor can work toward in the future. The plan does not include detailed designs, rather it describes goals and objectives for designers to work toward. Topography, existing development, turn radii, and hundreds of other design details still need to be addressed for each improvement.

2022 TETON REGIONAL HOUSING NEEDS ASSESSMENT:
The 2022 Teton Regional Housing Needs Assessment was sponsored by Teton County, Wyoming, Teton County, Idaho, and its jurisdictions. The purpose is to evaluate the housing needs of residents and employees making their living in the Teton Region and understand not only specific housing needs for each county in the study area, but also their regional connection related to jobs, housing, and community. The study also summarizes the extensive work already occurring in the region with regard to resident and employee housing needs and programs and provides recommendations for each county and the region to help further progress. It is our hope that this information will not only help inform and guide future housing policies and programs, but also help to educate the communities and the region on how having diverse and secure housing opportunities that local residents and employees can afford supports the health, sustainability, and vibrancy of the Teton Region.

Teton County Idaho Economic Study of 2021:
THESIS: COMBATING ZOMBIE SUBDIVISIONS IN TETON COUNTY IDAHO
Combating Zombie Subdivisions in Teton County, Idaho is a thesis report by Taylor Cook.
This research examined the history, background, and viable solutions to deal with zombie subdivisions in the Teton Valley area (Teton County, Idaho). Overdevelopment, lack of responsible zoning code enforcement, and the 2008 economic recession are some key factors contributing to the ongoing dilemma of zombie subdivisions in the Teton Valley. The current and past long-range plan for Teton County, Idaho, was reviewed and analyzed to understand the workings and planning mechanisms that were and are currently set in place. Zoning code, Idaho state statutes, and development agreements between Teton County officials and developers were closely reviewed to understand the limitations on what ideas could potentially be used as recommendations for the research conclusion. A case study was conducted on other areas situated in the inter-mountain west that have experienced similar issues regarding zombie subdivisions and overdevelopment. Major stakeholder groups in Teton Valley were consulted to further analyze the core issues of zombie subdivisions and understand what realistic solutions to the issue can be achieved. Environmental and local economic characteristics were examined to provide a clear path to the conclusion of the research. The main environmental and local economic characteristics examined included preserving farmland and habitat corridors, sustainable development practices, property taxes, and zoning densities. The conclusion culminates by providing a set of viable and realistic recommendations to answer the research question of whether it is possible to successfully and sustainably combat zombie subdivisions.
