After delays, City Hall Plaza revamp to start next week

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.
