The Magic Valley: Too Much Growth?
Consensus is the Magic Valley is in boomtown status.
Some friends are telling me they would find a slower pace of life elsewhere if they could.
I’ve heard it from elected politicians in Twin Falls as well as yesterday in Jerome. Driving home, I took a few photographs underscoring what we’re seeing. We can’t stop people from freely moving and we can’t tell people what to do with their property. Selling to a developer is a nice way to build a nest egg and build it fast.
What are your thoughts on growth? Some friends are telling me they would find a slower pace of life elsewhere if they could. My choice would be somewhere like Swan Valley. The only downside is the dam, but if it ever failed I wouldn’t have much time to ponder consequences.
