More and more rooftops are encroaching on the rural landscape of Star and nearby Middleton. Growth has been one of the top issues facing the two communities in the past two decades, and now property tax assessments are on the rise. Ada County tax assessments are increasing 28%, and Canyon County 30%, this year.

The Idaho Matters Reporter Roundtable is back with the news you need to know before you head into the weekend. We discuss sticker shock from Ada County property tax assessments, median home prices in the Boise metro, the housing shortage crisis in Ketchum, and a national expert on extremism weighs in on Idaho lawmakers' focus on critical race theory this past legislative session.

Kevin Richert of Idaho Education News leads our conversation today with our journalist panel:

  • Clark Corbin of Idaho Capital Sun
  • Rachel Cohen with Boise State Public Radio News
  • Rachel Spacek with the Idaho Statesman
  • Don Day of BoiseDev
