Spaulding Ranch Public Meeting #2 Design Charrette

The community will be meeting again with the design consulting group involved with developing Spaulding Ranch.

Wednesday February 1st at Valley View Elementary from 6-830pm.

This meeting will have a brief presentation of the comments provided to date, and then we will be working in groups to come up with potential layouts for the site, with a debrief at the end of all of the groups potential options. Hopefully it will be fun, but it will probably take the entire 2 and a half hours.

If you can’t make it to this event please take a moment to fill out the survey online.

Spaulding Ranch Project Open House

SpauldingBoise Parks and Recreation invites neighbors to attend and provide input for the Spaulding Ranch Master Plan, a 20-acre site located at 3805 North Cole Road.

The open house is scheduled for Thursday, November 10th from 6-8pm at Capital High School Cafeteria, 8055 W Goddard Road.

Spaulding Ranch was acquired by the City of Boise in early 2016 and is the first property of its kind in Boise Parks and Recreation’s inventory. The open house will be an opportunity for neighbors and interested parties to identify park needs of the neighborhood and ideas for the property in the future.

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.
