In this article the author comments on the revision of the comprehensive plan and development code by the Lemhi County Planning and Zoning Commissioners in Idaho. The revision includes the need to determine the place where a resident's grandparents were born to identify their connection with the county. She said that the code promotes the concept of multigeneration among the residents and the segregation of vocal minority or strangers whose ancestors came from the other states.
