Boise State University’s Center for the Study on Aging in partnership with the Boise City Parks and Recreation Department invites you to participate in the World Health Organization’s (WHO) “Age-Friendly Cities Project.” The goal of this project is to gather information about the positive and negative experiences of older adults living in Boise.  This information will be shared with administrators employed by the City of Boise and used for planning.
 

If you an older adult (60 years or older) residing in Boise, a caregiver of an older adult, or a service provider for older adults please complete the City of Boise Age Friendly Assessment. To access the survey, click on the following link. An explanation of the assessment is presented on the first page of the survey. Please complete the survey by Monday, March 16th, 2015.

Last fall, in cooperation with the Land Trust of the Treasure Valley, we applied for a City Neighborhood Reinvestment Grant. We were successfully awarded that grant. The purpose of the grant is to install dog waste 'mutt mitts' and garbage cans at the neighborhood access points to the Hillside to the Hollow trail system. Look for them this spring!

Save the Date, Saturday, May 2nd for a fun volunteer project constructing a new trail in Hillside to the Hollow! Stay tuned for more info about this new trail which will connect from the bottom of the Hollow to the ridge near Hillway Dr at a much gentler grade.

This is also National Firewise Day and we may have another volunteer opportunity for you to participate in. Either way, save the date!

Thanks everyone for being neighborly,
The Board
