Please comment – ACHD Budget & Projects

Dear Neighborhood Leaders,

Many have expressed interest or concern about how ACHD allocates roadway funds and how priority projects are selected, including intersections, sidewalk and bike lanes. Now is your opportunity to let your neighborhood be represented in funding decisions
This Thursday, July 28th, the Ada County Highway District will hold their first ever open house on their budget for next year, 2017.
In the past, few people show up to comment on their budget. This is a new effort to reach out to the public to make the $103 million spending plan understandable and approachable for comment.
“We would like to know what people think,” said Kent Goldthorpe, commission president. “Everyone has a stake in safe roadways and better ways of getting around. We have projects for motorists, cyclists and walkers in the budget and we need to know if people like the mix.”
The open house will occur from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. on July 28, 2016 in the ACHD Auditorium, 3775 Adams St., in Garden City. The ACHD Commission will consider the budget for approval with a public hearing in late August.
Please share this meeting opportunity with your members; it is a real opportunity for them and your association to speak and be heard on how your highway district tax funds are allocated.
Thank you, hope to see many of you there.
Kathleen

lwv

This information made its way to us from the League of Women Voters I thought I would share

We have an Ada County Commissioner candidate forum Wednesday evening, May 11 at the Boise Public Library Auditorium on Capitol Blvd. from 7 to 9 p.m.

All six candidates have agreed to participate.  Dr. Jim Weatherby will moderate the forum. We will take written questions from the audience.

We also have the Supreme Court candidates on Idaho Public Television Friday evening the 6th from 8 to 9.  It will be available to watch on the Idaho PTV  website the next day.

Graffiti

Graffiti, a scourge on our neighborhoods. These images were sent to me and I thought I would share them here. We must come together as a force against tagging. Let’s not let this activity take our our neighborhood.

To accomplish our goal of quick graffiti removal, the City of Boise requests that citizens contact the Boise City Police Department at 377-6790 and file a report as soon as the Graffiti is discovered.

Please take a few minutes to read this information.

If you see graffiti in progress CALL 911

Coming soon to a signal box near you

As the weather heats up it’s time to keep an eye on signal boxes. The vinyl needs warm temperature for the installation. Here is a sneak peek of the Capitol High Box at Goddard and Milwaukee By local artist Danielle Mierzwa
