The County has been working diligently on Phase 3 & 4 of the Blackfoot residential development consisting of 70 new lots.  This is an excellent growth opportunity for the community and region.  We anticipate these lots will attract young families and potentially long term residents.  Our goal is to have fully serviced, sizeable, affordable lots that are completed to the highest standards.  To this end, we have reviewed the capacity of the water and sewer facilities to meet the needs of these new lots, without sacrificing existing services.  We are now undergoing a comprehensive facility upgrade to ensure services throughout Blackfoot will remain steady with the impending growth.  This process has delayed our development progress, but we see the end result being better for everyone in the community in the long run. We currently have 5 lots available for sale - details here.
