NAMPA, Idaho — Nampa and Caldwell are bringing back some of their in-person services starting Monday.

City officials say they have seen a slowdown in the spread of COVID-19 cases in the community, and that coupled with the rollout of the vaccine, is enough to offer limited services.

•Nampa's Development Services Building at 500 12th Avenue South - Scheduled to reopen to the public on Tuesday, Feb. 16. All services remain available via appointment and online through individual departments.
