US Bank will close a small number of its nearly 100 branches in Idaho, the company confirms to BoiseDev.

One of the locations is located adjacent to a potential site for a new Boise Sports Park. The branch occupies a building at 27th St. and Fairview Ave. The property is owned by Maryann Fivecoat of Boise, according to Ada County property records. An attempt to reach Fivecoat was not returned.

Greenstone Properties hopes to build a mixed-use stadium in Boise’s west downtown area. It acquired its first property in the area earlier this month, the Symposion bar as BoiseDev first reported.

US Bank said the closures came after a review, and are not specific to the possible stadium project.

“As we reviewed our branch network, we determined that the demand for services at these locations necessitated a change on our approach and to our presence in the community,” Evan Lapiska, VP of Public Affairs and Corporate Communication for US Bank said. “This was a difficult decision and not one taken lightly. We understand that the closure of any branch is a disruption for our customers and our employees and we are working to make the transition as smooth as possible for all involved.”

The Capital branch at 111 S. 27th St. will close on June 12th.

A branch inside the Emmett Albertsons store at 640 Highway 16 will close June 11th. Another Albertsons branch on 20 E. Fairview Ave. in Meridian will close up shop on June 5th.

US Bank said it notified customers of the changes earlier this month and pointed them to other locations. The company has two branches in the Downtown Boise core and another near the 17th & State Albertsons.
