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.
We are holding these visioning events with Energize our Neighborhoods to collect the desires of our neighborhood.
This is an important first step on the path to addressing the needs and desires of our slice of Boise on the West Bench.
Please join us Wed, September 12, 5:30pm – 7:30pm

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 hazardousmaterials 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.
Energize Our Neighborhoods and the City of Boise want to highlight the things you and your neighbors love most about your neighborhood by featuring photos that showcase its unique attributes – anything from a landmark to a celebration.
We will choose winners weekly, and in addition to being featured on City channels, participants will be eligible to win a family package to Zoo Boise or IceWorld.
· We will choose photos each week to feature on the City of Boise Facebook and Instagram pages, the City of Boise weekly newsletter, “In the Know,” and in a slideshow to be shown at the Energize Boise Celebration in September.
· Participants will be eligible to win a family package to Zoo Boise or IceWorld
Please take a moment and complete this survey. It’s results will guide investments in our neighborhood.
The purpose of these questions is to gather input about the West Bench Neighborhood from residents, people who work or own a business in the neighborhood, and families whose children attend school in the neighborhood. Your input and vision for West Bench will help us to identify areas of focus and projects that create a more unique, desirable, and livable neighborhood for everyone.
Join us for food, drinks and merriment as we showcase and celebrate the work that our Boise National Street Service Volunteers completed in the spring. Volunteers have been working across the city to change the way we talk about our streets and public spaces. During this event, we will share the work they have done, what we have learned and how we can move forward together to make Boise streets a better place for everyone. Please join us to be part of the conversation.
