Residents and parents of Dry Creek Ranch showed up at the Ada County Planning and Zoning Commission meeting to ask for a development modification.
The modification would have allowed a different type of public elementary school, such as a charter school, to be built on the property rather than a West Ada school. However, the commission moved to recommend the denial of the project.
When Dry Creek Ranch was first being planned for unincorporated Ada County north of Boise, local developer Boise Hunter Homes agreed to donate about seven acres of land on the parcel to the West Ada School District to eventually build an on-site elementary school. Several years later, this has not happened and according to James Hunter of Boise Hunter Homes, it will not happen soon.
