The Central Foothills Neighborhood Association (CFNA) recently received a Neighborhood Reinvestment Grant award and a mini-grant!

The Neighborhood Reinvestment Program (NRP) program is a partnership between the City of Boise and City registered neighborhood associations.  The program funds comprehensive neighborhood plans and capital construction projects to help enrich the lives of our Boiseans, enhance the identity and quality of life in neighborhoods and encourage a strong sense of community. The program also funds mini-grants to support neighborhood communication and community building.  Neighborhood input is a valued aspect of the program. Active neighborhood associations were invited to generate ideas for Neighborhood Reinvestment projects and CFNA was successful in our applications (one for the chipper truck and one for communications)!

As part of our Firewise neighborhood efforts, CFNA’s neighborhood reinvestment award is focused on minimizing wild fire potential in the Central Foothills Neighborhood.  We will once again bring the chipper back to our neighborhood.  

The City of Boise is currently conducting an open bid process to select the vendor for the chipper activities this year.  They anticipate this process will be completed by the end of May with a vendor selected.  Once this occurs and dates secured, we will post this information. 

We anticipate a couple of days in June and another in September/October time frame for pick up of woody debris (e.g. brush, branches, etc.) from the curbside in front of your house. The chipper is only available for landscape waste and is not intended for non-landscaping materials.   

We will send out notice of dates once a vendor has been selected and dates confirmed.
