TAZ Map

In 2010 the U.S. Census Bureau listed the City of Post Falls population at 27,574.  By the year 2035 the population is expected to exceed 70,000.  Most of the growth is anticipated to occur in the northeastern portions of the City, along the SH41 Corridor.

A Transportation Master Plan allows the City to set priorities and budgets that can respond to growth and continue to provide a transportation system that can handle the publics transportation needs in a safe, efficient manner while limiting spending funding on unnecessary projects.

The Population Gain in Transportation Analysis Zones (TAZ) Map was created by taking expected population growth and placing it within the City and its growth area based on: existing development trends, available land, available utilities (sewer, water).  The placement of population is then used to predict where needs for new roads and improvements to existing roads and intersections are needed.

Please share with us your questions and concerns regarding population growth and its impacts to the City’s future transportation priorities and needs.
