Nampa has a small-town feel with big city possibilities. With almost 92,000 residents, this city has seen its population double since 2000. Nampa is home to two colleges – Northwest Nazarene University and the College of Western Idaho. The city offers easy access to Interstate 84 and the recreational amenities of the Owyhee mountains to the south. The city recently opened a new 62,000 sf public library and is currently under construction on two new large acreage city parks. Downtown Nampa is a trip back in time with brick buildings and its own historic train depot.
