Valley County Idaho ~ Code Of The New West
Old West values like integrity, self-reliance and accountability guided their decisions, actions and interactions. Their survival depended upon their ability to cooperate with their neighbors — an attitude of collective responsibility to society and finding non-partisan solutions to environmental problems and other important issues. In keeping with that spirit, we offer this information to help the citizens of Valley County who wish to follow in the footsteps of those rugged individuals by living in the rural areas of Valley County.
Introduction: It is important to become aware of the realities of living in rural Idaho. It is also important for you to know that life in the country is different from life in the city. You need to be prepared.
As you look for a place to make your home, look at the community and its people. County and small town governments are not able to provide the same level of service that city governments provide. However, the County does have a complete set of ordinances, such as: building codes, land use codes, lighting standards, and even rules on how to place your culverts. You should think about transportation, communication, education, health care, employment and public services that are so essential to our modern way of life. To that end, we are providing you with the following information to help you make an educated informed decision before you purchase property or build a home in our county.
