Boise’s Historic Preservation Laws Get Harsher, Especially for Developers
Boise’s Historic Preservation Laws Get Harsher, Especially for Developers
If you live in an older home or have older trees on your property make sure you check before you make any big changes. Cutting down an old tree on your property may seem like no big deal but if it is considered a historic tree, it is in fact a very big deal. A very big deal indeed to the city of Boise and the Historic Preservation Society. Boise just approved new penalties for breaking preservation rules. The matter was raised after historic homes and historic trees were wrongly demolished in Boise's North End and in Boise's East End.

The underground tunnels are mostly used by government and state employees. The tunnels go under streets, sidewalks and buildings mostly in and around the capitol in downtown Boise. Most of the original paintings are dated from 1986, 1987, and 1988. The original art has been hiding from the public in these underground tunnels for close to 35 years. I felt drawn to share them and hopefully get a few stories from the artists.
