There is a New Second Largest City in Idaho
NAMPA, Idaho (AP) — Nampa might no longer be Idaho's second-largest city.
Though the U.S. Census Bureau still has Nampa in the second spot, an estimate from the Community Planning Association of Southwest Idaho shows Meridian surpassing its neighbor.
Twenty-five years ago, Nampa's population was three times the size of Meridian's. The mayors of the two cities tell the Idaho Press-Tribune they don't view the population figures as a competition, and are more concerned with growing the economy.
