2010 Progress Report
CEDS Update Process

This year’s CEDS update process was a multi-faceted approach: 1) Cities and counties submitted updated project lists, indicated successes
and challenges, and identified the programs, partnerships and initiatives they support to address local and regional goals and objectives; 2)
Staff analyzed the data submitted by cities and counties along with 2009-2010 projects, programs, partnerships and initiatives supported by
the Economic Development District; and 3) Staff held a series of five workshops around the region to validate barriers and needs and solicit
feedback on the annual strategy focus, Defining the Region.

The 2010 CEDS workshop series was attended by elected officials, city and county staff, economic development professionals, CEDS
committee members and private business representatives. Staff facilitated discussions on the annual strategy focus, Defining the Region, in
which participants engaged in discussions about the ten-county region as a functional planning area. Participants also discussed the barriers
to economic development listed in the 2009-2014 CEDS and suggested additional barriers and needs based on their current economic
development priorities and challenges.

Updated projects, programs, partnerships and initiatives can be found in the County Profiles and Projects section of this report. Project lists
identify priority level, partners, investment, job impact and status for each project. Projects are also tied to CEDS goals, objectives and
strategies through the Monitoring and Implementation.

New Trends, Barriers & Needs

The most recent economic decline driven by the collapse of the real estate market and financial markets has continued to affect both the state
of Idaho and Region III over the past year. Unemployment rates in some rural counties within Region III are almost double the 8% state
unemployment rate; Adams and Valley County unemployment rates are among the highest in the state at 15.1% and 13.3% respectively. A
lack of job diversity in rural economies is partially to blame for the lack of resiliency in the recession.

The most recent economic downturn has affected both private and public entities nationally and locally. Governments have been forced to
eliminate jobs and reduce essential services. Some unmet critical needs have been addressed through federal funds as part of the American
Recovery and Reinvestment Act, but this is a temporary boost in assistance. A majority of cities and counties in the region are supporting new
sub-regional partnerships and investing in economic development professionals and organizations to diversify their economies. In some

Finally, financing was identified as a significant barrier. The formation and growth of small business depends greatly on access to credit.
Lending declined steeply in the financial crisis of 2008 and stayed that way throughout 2010. Small business loans are considered very risky
and many banks are facing increased pressure from regulators to reduce risk. While they may have funds available and may be willing to
increase small business lending, new regulations are keeping them from doing so. Small business credit is still severely restricted. Support
services are needed to connect small business with resources that can help them overcome new impediments to lending.

Annual Strategy Focus: Defining the Region

The benefits of planning and implementing economic development strategies on a regional scale come from the effectiveness and efficiency
of pooling and leveraging resources to address shared objectives. Planning for economic development, housing, land use, transportation
and the environment often necessitates an area-wide approach. Regional and sub-regional partnerships are becoming a requirement for
small-town survival. Support for regional cooperation has grown steadily in recent years at the local, state and federal levels. Especially at
the federal level, regionalism has become the preferred model for sustainable community economic development. Federal policies are
enhancing regional coordination through partnerships between the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Housing & Urban Development
(HUD), Department of Transportation (DOT) and the Economic Development Administration (EDA).

New federal funding opportunities often require regional cooperation and request that investment needs are prioritized on a regional scale.
This new direction from federal partners has important implications for regional economic development strategies. Primarily, it requires that
communities within the region self-identify as part of a common region and therefore as a constituency.

The Southwest Idaho (Region III) Economic Development District constitutes a large area (ten counties and 35 cities) with significant
geographic, economic and socio-economic (i.e. urban-rural) diversity. For this reason, the strategy focus for the annual CEDS workshop
update series was, “Defining the Region.” Participants were asked to define their region based on a number of different factors: common
issues or concerns, metropolitan areas, travel patterns, economic links, trade flows, labor markets, buying patterns, water supply, water
quality, access to services, natural features, geography, shared natural resources, social communities, language, arts, and culture. They were
encouraged to delineate regions or sub-regions that were functional rather than purely administrative.

The goals of Defining the Region were three-fold:
   1. Clarify core areas of interest, concern and activity;
   2. Identify potential subregions based on social, economic, administrative, physical and natural characteristic; and
   3. Match the spatial scale of community and economic development strategies to these core areas and subregions.

The ultimate goal was to discern whether economic development priorities varied greatly between identified subregions, and if so whether the
structure of the Region III CEDS should be revised to acknowledge subregional delineations. The CEDS should be a comprehensive tool for
prioritizing federal investments on a regional scale. If the CEDS is to be successful in meeting this goal, the defined regions must be
functional planning areas.

Participants were asked to think about what encourages them to work with other jurisdictions and to form multi-jurisdictional partnerships.
They were also asked to delineate areas that are connected by social, cultural, economic, administrative, physical and natural characteristics
on a map.

Several methods of defining regions and subregions were identified.


          WAYS OF DEFINING REGIONS & SUBREGIONS
        - Tourism & Travel                - River Corridors
        - Recreation                      - Delivery of Services

        - New Economies                   - Educational Opportunities
        - “Green-ness”                    - Medical Services

        - Participation in Partnerships   - Agricultural Lands
        - Transportation Corridors        - Commuting patterns
        - Planning Issues                 - Airsheds



Three common themes emerged at the workshops for subregional
delineation: Access to Services, Resource Based Economic Regions,
and Planning and Collaboration Partnerships.

Access to Services

Subregional connections were identified based on trade flow, travel
patterns, labor markets and access to services such as airports,
hospitals, entertainment and retail. The Boise Metro Area is a draw for
communities on the fringe of the urban core. Ontario, Oregon draws
people from Washington, Payette and Canyon counties. Residents of
Valley and Adams counties are drawn to both the Boise Metro Area
and north to Riggins, Grangeville and Lewiston. Elmore County
residents access services and employment opportunities in the Boise
Metro Area and Twin Falls. Distance, travel times, congestion, social
networks and weather were cited as the major factors contributing to
these patterns.

                       Resource Based Economic Regions

                       Partnerships within resource based economic regions are
                       supported equally by emerging resource based industries, by the
                       opportunity to collectively market tourism and recreation
                       destinations, and by state and federal regulations that require
                       cities and counties to jointly manage forestlands, rangelands and
                       other natural resources.

                       The northern half of the region is dominated by timber and ranch
                       land. Through the Woody Biomass Utilization Partnership,
                       Adams, Valley, Gem and Boise counties are participating in the
                       creation of a new industry focused on small wood utilization and
                       energy generation. Adams and Valley counties are connected by
                       the Payette National Forest. The Boise National Forest bridges
                       Valley and Boise counties.

                       The middle third of Region III is dominated by agriculture.
                       Canyon County boasts some of the best agricultural soils in the
                       state. There are several new initiatives in the region to increase
                       the amount of food grown locally and to improve access to
                       locally grown foods. New farmers markets, community gardens
                       and partnerships that support local and regional food systems are
                       contributing to an emerging local food economy.

                       Tourism and recreation are economies that encourage
                       collaboration based on geography and shared natural resources.
                       Boise and Valley counties are naturally linked by forest lands and
                       the Payette River and are easily accessible by Highway 55 and
                       Highway 21.      Owyhee County draws recreationists down the
                       Highway 95 corridor for Off Highway Vehicle use, hunting and
                       fishing.

                       Planning and Collaboration

                       The EDA planning boundary for the Region III Economic
                       Development District is an administrative delineation that
                       corresponds to regional designations used by other state agencies
                       including the Area Agency on Aging, Idaho Transportation
                       Department and the Idaho Tourism Division. These designations
                       are most likely based on distance to metropolitan areas and thus
                       service delivery territories.

                       Workshop participants identified functional planning regions
                       based on common issues and concerns. Communities along the
                       Payette River Scenic Byway work together to promote tourism and
                       recreation. They have similar community cultures based in the
                       small town, rural Idaho lifestyle and similar development histories
                       based in the Boise-Cascade lumber mill economy.

                       Despite their proximity to the Boise Metro Area, Elmore and
                       Owyhee counties tend to identify more with the Magic Valley
                       (Region IV, to the east) when it comes to planning and
                       development issues.

                       Washington and Payette counties are part of a new economic
                       development organization, the Snake River Economic
                       Development Association, which includes Malheur County,
                       Oregon. The city of Ontario, Oregon is an important center of
                       employment and services for Washington and Payette county
                       residents.




 
Progress Report   11                                    Region III 2010 CEDS Update
                       Identified Sub-Regions

                       This composite map reflects identified subregions based on
                       participant feedback. The core areas of interest and concern in
                       Region III are 1) Access to Services, 2) Resource Based
                       Economies, and 3) Planning partnerships.

                       These subregional delineations are different than those that
                       would be expected from simply looking at one factor, for
                       example geography or distance from service centers.
                       Participant feedback suggests that cultural and economic
                       similarities are more important factors in multi-jurisdictional
                       partnerships than distance. There is a significant amount of will
                       in small and rural towns to remain small and rural.

                       This activity also suggests that while some economic and
                       community development needs should be assessed on a larger,
                       ten-county scale (transportation, higher education), there may
                       be benefits to approaching economic and community
                       development from a sub-regional scale as well.

                       Federal agencies (EDA, EPA, DOT, HUD) are emphasizing the
                       need for regional collaboration, regional innovation clusters,
                       regional sustainability plans, regional investment strategies and
                       regional governance. The annual CEDS strategy update,
                       Defining the Region, identifies functional regions as they are
                       defined by the cities and counties of Region III. This is an
                       important first step toward identifying regional competitive
                       advantages and prioritizing private and public investments
                       necessary to exploit these advantages.

                              dictate Region III’s Goals, Objectives and Strategies. Goals and objectives are
                              established to overcome Region III barriers. Needs are broken down into more
                              detailed strategies that can be employed to meet our goals and objectives. The
                              “Monitoring and Implementation” section tracks the number of projects, programs,
                              initiatives and partnerships each county (and the cities within) is supporting to
                              overcome barriers, meet needs and fulfill the goals and objectives of the CEDS.

Maintain Business & Community Development staffing levels.

SAGE Planning staff has integrated both economic and community development work into their overall scope of responsibilities. Economic
development planning is currently a shared staff function. Key staff include:

       Pat Engel, Director of Business & Community Development;
       Jenn Atkinson, Planning & Development Services Program Manager;
       Marianne Massey, Planning Technician;
       Delta James, Planning Specialist;
       Neil Crescenti, Planning Specialist;
       Amy Twilegar, Project Coordinator, and
       Jan Adams, Administrative Assistant

This past year we did hire a part-time research assistant funded in part through a non-EDA funded project. We are coordinating with BSU to
have an ongoing internship for data collection. We are pursuing sufficient funding to provide full-time professional staff in the Planning &
Development Service Program.

Targeted efforts of the Planning Team include:

        Community planning and capacity building
        Project planning and development
        Grant writing and resource development
        Administrative and management services
        Technical assistance and community economic development counseling

Continue to develop a database (project files)

Our project file database organized information gathered in the outreach process on a county and municipal level. This action is an internal
operation to upgrade the information collected during community outreach activities. The products of this effort are hard copy and electronic
files of county and municipal information. This is an enhancement of existing resource files.

Perform a management system for project review, evaluation and development

CEDS committee members and staff shall focus and adjust workloads resulting from enhanced program development activity. The target is to
create a sustainable and effective planning effort.

 
Appendix A                                                           93                                     Region III 2010 CEDS Update
During the current fiscal period, Sage development activities are experiencing and increase in project workload. This activity is designated to
provide a framework for management of that workload. The concept allows projects to flow through our system in the following manner:

   1. Potential projects enter the process on a “Project Intake Form” developed by staff and local project representatives of through the
      CEDS project update process. This year each city/county was asked to also document success and challenges in meeting last year’s
      “No. 1 Priority” projects.”

   2. Project Intake Forms and CEDS project lists are reviewed on a regular basis by Sage Community & Business Development department
      staff. Projects are then placed into the “work stream” based on review and evaluation criteria examples of which include:
           a. Critical need
           b. Local commitment
           c. Likelihood for successful funding/completion
           d. Timing
           e. Current workload (and ability to adjust)
           f. Development outcomes (i.e., jobs, industrial diversification or tax base expansion)
           g. Potential return on investment for Sage

   3. Project representatives are informed of placement in the work stream and project schedules. Questions are then handled by the
      project review committee and the CEDS committee, which provide oversight for the system.


This final step in the management system includes the placement of potential projects into primary, secondary, and tertiary levels depending
upon the degree of the previously mentioned evaluation criteria. A brief discussion describing the characteristics of these categories follows:

       Level I     Projects in this category have a high need factor as well as clear local commitment
                   (including local funds). These activities fit within a short-term time frame and can be assessed as having a high degree of
                   potential for successful funding and completion and an unmistakable fit with Sage’s economic development mission.

       Level II    Projects in this category have the same characteristics as Level I projects but with somewhat lesser urgency. As an example
                   a water supply/distribution project may not present a clear and present impediment to long-term community development,
                   but identifiable issues exist that threaten to disrupt the development process. The length of time required to address other
                   issues such as funding, cost estimates, pre-design solutions, etc., is also substantially longer than in the first level.

       Level III   Projects in this category are specific and identifiable but require significant additional project planning. These community
                   and economic development project potentials can often require a year or more of development effort, but certainly are
                   viable in concept and need.

Strategy Oversight & Review

This program development and management module is presented in concept as a fully operational and integrated device to guide SAGE
projected development activities. This process actually began under the 92-93 “OEDP” and is being maintained and our current assessment
of results is positive.

As previously mentioned the CEDS committee serves in an oversight capacity in working with the Strategy Committee and staff to develop
final management guidelines, general priorities for the program, and to provide problem solving capabilities. Staff and the Strategy
committee are involved with liaison and reporting to the Board concerning progress of the enhanced project management system.

The Business & Community Development department, as a part of the organization-wide business planning effort, has created a departmental
business plan. This plan will become the template for departmental operations through 2008 and will be examined and updated annually.

BROWNFIELDS REDEVELOPMENT AND REINVESTMENT PROGRAM: 
Innovation and Collaboration Leading to Restoration, Revitalization, and Redevelopment

       DEFINITION OF A BROWNFIELD: Brownfields are real property, the expansion, redevelopment, or reuse of which may be
       complicated by the presence or potential presence of a hazardous substance, pollutant, or contaminant. Cleaning up and
       reinvesting in these properties takes development pressures off of undeveloped, open land and both improves and protects
       the environment

Background
In 2004 Sage, along with the other five Economic Development Districts (EDDs) in Idaho, and the Idaho Department of
Environmental Quality (IDEQ), established a statewide coalition with the goal of creating a statewide funding source for the
cleanup of Brownfields properties in Idaho. In November 2004, Sage prepared and submitted an application to the
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for $3 million to capitalize a statewide Revolving Loan Fund (RLF) for cleanup of identified
contamination. The Reuse Idaho Brownfields Coalition (RIBC) was selected and received a Brownfields RLF grant in November
2006. Our statewide goal is to enable communities to reuse blighted properties thereby increasing surrounding property values
and generating economic opportunities - the conditions where jobs can be created.

To provide additional incentive, the Idaho state legislature funded the Community Reinvestment Pilot Initiative (Pilot). This
program makes up to $1.5 million in state funds available to private and non-profit entities completing DEQ-approved cleanups
at any of the ten (10) properties selected as Pilot Brownfields – vacant or underutilized properties the reuse of which is
complicated by environmental contamination. Specifically, upon cleanup completion, the State issues the participant a
Community Reinvestment Rebate equaling 70% of cleanup costs incurred, with a maximum rebate of $150,000 per Pilot
Brownfield.

Implementation of the Brownfield Revolving Loan Fund (BRLF) began February 27, 2007, with a presentation to the six Directors
of the Economic Development Districts and RIBC, representatives of the Idaho Department of Environmental Quality, and the
Environmental Protection Agency. The website www.idahobrownfields.org came online promptly resulting in an on-line request
for a BRLF application in the Panhandle Area. BRLF inquiries have been received from each of the Economic Development




 
Appendix B                                                       97                                    Region III 2010 CEDS Update
Districts, ranging from former gas stations and dry cleaners to abandoned mine sites and most notably the historic Albion State
Normal School in Cassia County.

The BRLF provides communities with an opportunity to springboard economic development much as the Capital City
Development Corporation (CCDC) and the City of Caldwell used their EPA Assessment Grants to determine the extent of
contaminants (and reassure developers). Region 3 members can use the BRLF program to stimulate their specific economic
development projects.

This program will leverage existing public investments in infrastructure and encourage growth in Idaho's smallest as well as largest
downtowns, thus preserving our agricultural land in our comprehensive economic development strategy.

Cleanup
Our expansion of the Brownfields program with this new funding enhances our focus on developing, “partnerships for the
economic development of communities”. The grant will be used to capitalize a revolving loan fund from which the Reuse Idaho
Brownfields Coalition (RIBC) will provide loans and limited sub-grants to support cleanup activities for sites in areas contaminated
with hazardous substances and petroleum. This funding is critical in a state where 74 percent of Idaho's regions meet the federal
"area distress" criteria based on per capita income and unemployment rates. Many rural communities continue efforts to reuse
former lumber mill sites left from the decline of the timber industry. In the past decade, the Boise Cascade Corporation, a large
Idaho employer, closed its lumber mills, stripping numerous cities of their primary employer and leaving behind abandoned sites.
Numerous mining operations have also closed down, leaving communities with damaged properties.

In much of Idaho, Greenfields are inexpensive and attractive to developers. By offering competitive financing for Brownfields
properties, this new Revolving Loan Fund will help preserve greenspace, encourage reuse of existing infrastructure, protect and
improve public health and safety through the cleanup of sites, spur job creation, and eliminate blight in town centers. This new
statewide coalition – Reuse Idaho Brownfields Coalition (RIBC) - is an exciting new partnership program to address Brownfields
throughout the State of Idaho. Sage will be the lead in developing outreach assistance and management of this $3 million
program providing low-to-no interest financing for private as well as public entities.

Site-Specific Assessment
The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (IDEQ) and the EPA assessed over 30 Brownfields in 2004 through Idaho’s
Statewide Brownfield Response Program (see Assessment Fact Sheet following), and the IDEQ is developing a statewide inventory
of up to 300 sites. This is an excellent opportunity for site-specific assessment assistance that can be addressed quickly through
Idaho’s Statewide Brownfield Response program. A Fact Sheet is provided immediately following this section.

Area Wide Assessment: It was determined, in partnership with RIBC member, Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (IDEQ)
that a region wide “assessment” was not a critical need.

Voluntary Remediation: In 1996, the Idaho Legislature created the Idaho Land Remediation, DEQ's Voluntary Cleanup Program,
to encourage innovation and cooperation between the state, local communities and private parties working to revitalize properties
with hazardous substance or petroleum contamination. In 1997, DEQ developed the Idaho Land Remediation Rules detailing
implementation of the Voluntary Cleanup Program. DEQ also created an application to participate in the Program, and
Guidance for Application Completion. This Voluntary Remediation Program will go hand-in-hand with accessing Cleanup funding
through the Reuse Idaho Brownfields Coalition RLF for Cleanup.

To begin the process toward restoration, revitalization and redevelopment of abandoned or underutilized sites, use the
Brownfields Revitalization Inventory Form following this section, and submit to Sage Community Resources.

The Brownfield Area-wide Assessment Program
The goal of this program is to help local governments redevelop “Brownfield” sites in their communities by funding and
conducting site assessments when a lack of environmental information is complicating site redevelopment or reuse.

Through this program, funded through the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), trained professionals will conduct an
assessment to determine the nature and extent of contamination (if any) at proposed Brownfield sites. A Final Report will be
prepared that:

       Reveals whether a site is clean, lightly contaminated, or heavily contaminated;
       Determines the nature and extent of the contamination;
       Identifies potential cleanup options; and
       Estimates cleanup costs (if any).

   Who is Eligible to Apply?
   Units of local governments, local area development agencies, non-profit organizations and other government entities created
   by the State Legislature are eligible to participate in the program by submitting a completed Intake form on the reverse side of
   this page. The applicant does not have to own the site.

   What Sites Are Eligible for Assessments?
   All Brownfield sites are potentially eligible to participate if proposed by an eligible applicant, who did not cause or contribute
   to contamination at the site.
