Although not within WBNA boundries, the Hyatt Wetlands Project is a matter of importance to the residents of the WBNA.
Known by a variety of names, the Hyatt Hidden Lakes Reserve or Hyatt Wetlands, is a 44-acre haven for birds, animals, and people located on the edge of Boise’s West Bench. It will also be the site of an innovative stormwater treatment project featuring sand filters, stormwater piping, a porous pavement parking lot, restroom, an access bridge, pathways, and educational kiosks.

As you may be aware, the City of Boise has been working on a new ordinance to
implement those elements of Blueprint Boise that encourage urban agriculture and local
food production. The attached draft ordinance is the culmination of work completed by
the Urban Agriculture Committee. It was drafted only after receiving substantial
feedback on a set of preliminary recommendations presented to various parties earlier
this year. The amendment includes an update to existing standards for the keeping of
livestock and bees as well as new allowances for urban farms.
Attatched is a draft of that ordinance
