A year later, the project is stopped, and the property is for sale. Will a new project near Harris Ranch in Barber Valley ever come to fruition?
The Barber Hill Vista project from JKB Construction and Sherburne-Marrs would have added new homes similar in character to the nearby “Harris Ranch West” subdivision, plus a wetlands area and wildlife corridor.
The 8.65 acre plot of land is on the market for $2.875 million.
Ownership of the land was transferred to an entity controlled by Alan Malone, developer and former Winco Foods VP. Malone testified before Boise’s Planning & Zoning Commission last year in favor of the project, and said he was a friend of the Sherburne family.
Jared Sherburne told the Barber Valley Neighborhood Association they could not obtain full financing on the project. He told the BVNA board that the investor decided not to move forward with the project.
