BY STATE AFFAIRS COMMITTEE
1 A PROCLAMATION
2 COMMENDING THE CITY OF STAR FOR BEING INCORPORATED AS A CITY.
3 We, the members of the Senate and the House of Representatives of the
4 State of Idaho assembled in the Second Regular Session of the Fifty-fourth
5 Idaho Legislature, do hereby proclaim:
6 WHEREAS, the City of Star was incorporated December 10, 1997, as a city
7 and joins the ranks of Eagle, Kuna, Meridian, Garden City and Boise as incor-
8 porated cities in Ada County; and
9 WHEREAS, this is a historic occasion since the last city to become incor-
10 porated in Idaho was the City of Dover in Bonner County in the late 1980's;
12 WHEREAS, the Northwestern geographical area of Ada County known as Star is
13 experiencing significant population growth; and
14 WHEREAS, residents of Star believe the common good of their growing commu-
15 nity would be enhanced if they were incorporated as a city; and
16 WHEREAS, this incorporation culminated following two years of work by res-
17 idents who sought such incorporation; and
18 WHEREAS, incorporation as a city will enable the mayor and city council
19 to determine local issues and as a city, the City of Star will set local laws,
20 provide services and exercise land use planning.
21 NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT PROCLAIMED by the members of the Senate and the
22 House of Representatives assembled in the Second Regular Session of the
23 Fifty-fourth Idaho Legislature, that we congratulate the residents of Star for
24 their "can-do" attitude in making the incorporation happen and hereby commemo-
25 rate the incorporation of the City of Star.
26 BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Legislature of the State of Idaho would
27 like to state:
28 As poets have honored the beauty of the stars in the galaxy,
29 The Idaho Legislature honors its very own Star.
30 While it only twinkles in size to many other Idaho cities, its resi-
31 dents have an inner warmth of goodness, friendliness and community
33 We are confident these qualities will shine forth like diamonds in
34 the sky, as the new City of Star takes its place as one of Idaho's
35 shining examples of good and wise municipal government.
36 BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Secretary of the Senate be, and she is
37 hereby authorized to send a copy of this Proclamation to the mayor and city
38 council members of the City of Star.
