Welcome to Our Community!

Welcome from Mayor Rich Sykes

Mountain Home is a great place to live, work and play. Our thriving community, stable economy, our diverse geology and population and exceptional recreational opportunities are a few of the many things we can brag about. Our unique mix of urban and agricultural areas makes Mountain Home an excellent place to work, live and raise a family.

You will find our work force to be highly trained and of exceptional quality. Mountain Home Air Force Base with approximately 4,500 assigned military personnel provides nearly a billion dollar impact to the surrounding area. There are over 7,000 military retirees, age 38+, living throughout the area. We have a huge broad-based agri-business economy. In 2007, Marathon Cheese Corporation opened their new packaging facility and currently employs over 430 people.  They continue to expand their Mountain Home operations and will eventually provide good jobs to nearly 500 people.

We invite you to take a look at Mountain Home. We will work diligently and efficiently with you to show you the advantages of making Mountain Home the right choice for your business.  Here is a testimony from the Senior Vice President of Marathon Cheese about the ease of doing business with the City of Mountain Home…

“As you know, there are often differences between the courtship and actual building and expansion phase. We did not see that with Mountain Home when we decided to expand out west, the entire process went smoothly and there was no long drawn out bureaucratic process. The City of Mountain Home and the State of Idaho have done everything they promised and more, we were very pleased with the entire process!” -Gary Peterson

Our community is a wonderful place to live and do business.  View our Community Brochure HERE.
