The area in front of Boise City Hall is finally set to get its long-awaited revamp.
City officials announced the project will get underway on Monday April 3 - with construction stretching into August.
"Boise City Hall’s plaza is set to undergo a months-long renovation effort to repair underground structural issues and create a more pleasing and useable park-like community space," the city said in a news release.
Features of the revamp include:
- An elevated event plaza and seating steps
- Lawn area
- Interactive water feature
- Integrated lighting and trees
- Public art sculpture
The project will be funded by $3.8 million in taxpayer dollars - including $1.2 million from the Capital City Development Corporation and $2.6 million from the city's general fund.

The main entrance to City Hall will be closed throughout the project - with folks asked to enter the building on Main St.
The project was approved in 2015, but officials decided to hold off while other nearby construction projects wrapped up.
