Developer Meeting Notice

September 14th Meeting

WBNA was approached by Citizens for Better Transportation who offered to present their case for a ballot item that would increase vehicle registration fees intended to keep up with growth in Ada County.

WBNA strives to not take sides on political debate. With that said, our guests last night had interesting things to say about the future transportation challenges in Ada County, I feel it is worth our time to educate ourselves.

Citizens for Better Transportation is a group of pedestrian and bicycle safety advocates, ACHD Commissioners, builders, developers, engineers, lawyers and others concerned about the future of Ada County.

Work at Spaulding scheduled for August 2nd

I wanted to pass along a correspondence that I had with our new project manager for Spaulding Ranch.

Here is that excerpt from Trevor Kesner

I wanted to reach out and let you, and the neighborhood association know about this upcoming project, because I am certain folks will notice workers on-site. It is important to convey to everyone that the contractor is a licensed and bonded Asbestos mitigation specialist, and there is absolutely no health risk to neighbors of Spaulding Ranch. It is also very important to let folks know that the hazardous materials being removed have no historic value, and will not affect, nor alter any of the original, historic features of the home or any ancillary buildings.
