Idaho Power Community Advisory Process Meetings

Idaho Power initiated the Community Advisory Process (CAP) in March 2009 to engage communities from Boardman, Oregon to Melba, Idaho in siting the proposed Boardman to Hemingway Transmission Line Project (B2H Project).

CAP participants met from spring 2009 through spring 2010 to identify community issues and concerns; develop a range of possible routes (while following all federal, state and local processes); and recommend proposed and alternate routes.

View the North, Central, and South Project Advisory Team sections to view information about the PAT meetings. Information for the Grant and Harney PATs is available within the South PAT section.

Outcomes from the PAT meetings were presented at public meetings for review and comment.

Based on input, recommendations and feedback from the CAP, Idaho Power selected a proposed route in April 2010 which was submitted to the state and federal agencies for their separate review processes in summer 2010. Learn more about the process by reviewing the CAP Final Report.

The southern area is composed of Grant County, the northern part of Harney County, Malheur County and the eastern portions of Payette County, Canyon County, and Owyhee County.

The Community Advisory Process occurred in three geographic areas from Boardman, Oregon to Melba, Idaho: north (Morrow and Umatilla counties), central (Union and Baker counties) and south (Owyhee, Malheur, Washington, Payette, and Canyon counties). Project advisory teams were also formed in Grant and Harney counties.
