The real reason behind Kuna's expansion
Dave Taysom, who lives up off Meridian Road south of Lake Hazel Road, testified at last night's Kuna City Council meeting at which council members voted to extend the city's planning boundaries north to Amity Road. The extended boundaries also include the 3,400 acres recently annexed in as part of the Osprey Ridge development as well as thousands of other acres to the east of Kuna. Mr. Taysom said it would be impossible for Kuna to actually serve all that land, so it just didn't make sense why Kuna would be seeking to include all of that land in its comp plan. "Then I figured it out," he said conspiratorially. "You want to get big enough so the feds will bail you out."
