BoiseDev FIRST podcast: Meridian City Council member Luke Cavener

Perhaps the biggest hot spot for growth in the Treasure Valley is Meridian. It sits in the middle of the action between the capital city and Canyon County. On this month’s BoiseDev FIRST podcast, we chat with Luke Cavener who sits on Meridian City Council. It’s a wide-ranging discussion and hits on growth policy, new developments coming to town, Meridian’s role in growth politics across the valley and more. Luke and BoiseDev publisher Don Day also discuss his role in helping advocate for tighter smoking laws in Idaho. This is a benefit of BoiseDev FIRST membership – you can sign up today!
