Boise gears up to build a plan for future of North End

Saltzer Health

The City of Boise started an outreach process to build its plan for the future of the North End.

More than 10,000 Boiseans call the area home. One of Boise’s oldest and most politically-active neighborhoods, the North End sits between State St. and Hill Rd., and 4th St and 27th St (as defined by the city, at least).

Many neighborhoods throughout Boise have similar plans – some dating to 1984, and some updated just last year.

The city doesn’t have a neighborhood plan for the North End, just a “policy guide” that dates to the 1980s and includes many dated references.

The new plan will “guide change to benefit the community and ensure it reflects community priorities,” according to the city. It will supplement the city’s comprehensive plan – known as Blueprint Boise. The city says the plan will guide decision-making over the next ten years.

Next week, the city will hold the first of four workshops to help plan for the next ten years. Residents can drop by the North Junior High cafeteria from 4:30-7:30pm. City officials will hold a presentation at 5:30pm.

Residents can also take an online “Neighborhood Vision Survey.” It asks for details like a “big idea” for the area, what challenges it faces, and what people like most about living in the neighborhood. There’s also an online map where users can mark special places, transportation issues or leave other notes.

The next phase of the project starts this spring and will identify potential projects and prioritize goals. Then, this summer, neighbors can give input in the plan in its draft and final form.

The Boise City Council must approve the final plan once complete.
