SIEDO's New Website and Fast Facts

SIEDO has an updated website and Fast Facts about Southern Idaho. Information and data about our region is fascinating, especially if you look at Southern Idaho from the perspective of someone who is not familiar with our valley and may be looking to expand or locate here. Even if you have lived here for years, I am confident there is information here that will make you say "I didn't know that."
