To Protect Boise’s Future, Now is the Time to Speak Up
What if home prices keep going up? What if the roads can't keep up with population growth? More community conversations are coming up in Boise, and it's your chance to share your thoughts.
If you weren't part of the roundtable talks in Boise in late June, you've got another opportunity to hear about future plans, ask questions, and share opinions on the future.
Mayor Dave Bieter said the talks in June revealed how much people appreciate the quality of living in Boise, but concerns were also raised about housing affordability, transportation, and cultural and environmental preservation. Boise Weekly said 191 people attended the workshops in June, and another 176 sent thoughts online.
The City of Boise says the second round of workshops will dive in a little deeper to the four major themes that emerged the first time around and will "present specific growth scenarios so that participants can play a first-hand role in tackling the issues Boise is facing."
The next workshops are coming up from 10 a.m.-noon on Saturday, August 25th at Boise City Hall, and again from 6-8 p.m. on Tuesday, August. 28th at Timberline High School. Anyone can attend, and you can click HERE to register.
