People are attracted to Glenns Ferry because of its way-of-life, friendly residents, services, schools, low crime rate, proximity to trophy hunting, fishing and other outdoor attractions, and our small town way of life.   Glenns Ferry’s economic base remains largely dependent upon agriculture.  The City has been working diligently with different groups in the region to expand the economic base and become less dependent on a single sector.  An active Chamber of Commerce helps tie it all together.

Housing is both available and affordable.  If you should choose to build, whether large or small, properties are available—some within walking distance of the golf course.  Idaho Power, Intermountain Gas, CenturyLink Communications and the City of Glenns Ferry provide utilities at rates among the lowest in the nation.  The result is a cost of living that is very comfortable.

As our community continues to grow, Glenns Ferry is committed to a vision for the future that anticipates the needs of our community’s future citizens, well in advance of their arrival.  An active Economic Development Committee and Revitalization Committee are fully engaged in working toward that vision of the future, and our City Council makes decisions and takes action that lead us in that direction.

Those working, living and playing in the community today will determine the future success of Glenns Ferry.  Because of our location, centered between the Treasure Valley of Boise and the Magic Valley of Twin Falls, we jokingly say Glenns Ferry lies in the Tragic Valley.  What that means is that we have ready access to the outstanding assets of both the Treasure and Magic Valleys.  Welcome to our Community of Opportunity, where ‘farm meets charm.’
