This issue of the Curb It newsletter focuses on holiday waste reduction, reusing, and recycling. The winter holidays are the most wonderful – and most wasteful – events of the year. With a little effort and imagination, you can help reduce the environmental impact of the holiday season.
Dear Neighborhood Association Leaders:
Beginning Monday, November 22nd, the City and its community partners will launch the Have a Heart Give Smart program city wide. The goal of the program is to connect those among us in need with the many services our community offers. Additionally, it encourages our giving community to give to organizations providing much needed services.
Brochures will be available in Boise Albertsons, WinCo and Fred Meyer stores. Additionally, the Downtown Boise Association will distribute brochures to downtown businesses and merchants.
The electronic link (www.givesmartboise.org) will be shared with community based organizations and neighborhood contact officers. If you have additional suggestions, please let me know.

How is the website doing?
Valley Regional Transit is soliciting public comment to help in planning new public bus service in southwest Boise. The proposed route would connect at the Boise Towne Square Mall and travel along a route bordered by Overland Road to the north, Victory Road to the south, Cole Road to the east and Five Mile Road to the west. It may also be possible for the bus to make passenger pickups within a quarter-mile of the fixed-line route. We need to hear from you so we can include public comment in our planning process. If you are a student of faculty member of the Boise School District campus that includes Frank Church Hiogh School, West Junior High and administrative facilities, click HERE to access your survey. All other members of the public, please take the survey located HERE.
