New foothills subdivision proposed up Bogus Basin Rd.

A proposal to annex land in the Boise foothills will add another 20 homes on large lots along Bogus Basin Rd. – and potentially more in the future.

Charles Gibson owns property just to the north of the Hackberry North Subdivision and has applied to the City of Boise to annex 173 acres into the City of Boise. The project is about 2.5 miles up Bogus Basin Rd., near the Miller Gulch trailhead.

The first phase of the project, called the Shannon Ridge Subdivision, would include twenty lots for homes – each on a lot just less than an acre in size.

Roughly 42 acres would be dedicated to open space, while an additional 69 acres would be included in a future phase.

“All of the lots will be located on 2 prominent ridges that extend from N. Bogus Basin Road toward the lower land of the development,” David G. Powell with RiverRidge Engineers said in a letter filed with the project. “None of the 20 lots can be seen from the city due to the property being located within a ‘hollow’ that extends from the Dry Creek drainage from the west.”

The property currently is used as agricultural ranch land and has a single family home owned by Gibson which will remain on the property once the subdivision is built.

An analysis estimates the subdivision will generate roughly 200 vehicle trips per day, with about 60 of those on Harrison Blvd. at the base of Bogus Basin Rd.
