McLean to nominate new member for urban renewal commission

Regence Blue Shield of Idaho

Boise Mayor Lauren McLean will nominate Danielle Hurd to the commission for the Capital City Development Corporation. The nomination will go in front of Boise’s City Council at its regular meeting tonight.

Hurd serves as executive director for the American Institute of Architects’ chapter in the northwest. She previously worked for CTA (now Cushing Terrell) as regional director of client relations and owned a privately-held art & design studio. Hurd also serves as district council chair of the Urban Land Institute’s Idaho chapter.

If confirmed, Hurd will replace former Boise City Council member Ben Quintana on the urban renewal commission. Quintana’s term ended in May.

This is McLean’s fourth nomination to the panel. Earlier this year she added herself, Latonia Haney Keith and Kate Nelson to the CCDC board.

Former mayor Dave Bieter remains on the board, as well as four members he appointed: Dana Zuckerman, Ryan Woodings, Maryanne Jordan, and Gordon Jones. Bieter declined to leave the board despite McLean’s public requests he step back. At its meeting in March, the agency voted to change its executive committee, swapping Bieter for McLean in the role of secretary/treasurer.

A bill in the Idaho legislature that would have required any elected official to leave an urban renewal commission if they were no longer in office passed the senate but later stalled in the house. The bill would have removed Bieter from CCDC, as well as former Meridian Mayor Tammy de Weerd from the Meridian Development Corporation board.
