The Magal Subdivision at the end of Lancaster Dr application and appeal will be heard at the City Council Meeting on April 12 at 6pm, City Hall, 3rd Floor. Please attend!


The judge has not yet release his opinion of the Summary Judgement for the Bedard-Musser vs City of Boise lawsuit on the easement to the 63 acres above Hillside Jr High.

The Parks and Recreation Department will be slightly re-routing or building three trails in the Hillside to the Hollow Reserve: Who Now Loop, Bob Smylie Trail, Full Sail Trail. Several neighbors gave input on these changes.

A request from the Fire department:

In order to generate more survey responses, we are sending this survey link out a second time. On behalf of the Ada County Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan update steering committee (a plan which includes natural-hazards of concern such as wildfire, flood, etc...) we are hoping that you will take a moment to provide valuable input on a survey to let us know what is important to you. If you haven't yet responded, we would greatly appreciate your response. Thank you for your time and your commitment to making Boise the most livable city in the country.
