The City continues to work with a developer on a possible housing development at the old Boise Marine site, and the final environmental tests completed in August indicate residential development on this property is viable. The City and DEQ have been working for the past 2 years through the Brownsfield program to complete this work and help remove possible barriers to development.
ACHD held a second open house to present the preferred street sections along Main and Fairview after gathering significant community input. Both of the preferred street sections call for removing 1 travel lane and adding a buffered or protected bike lane. In addition, Main Street calls for on street parking along the south side while Fairview calls for on street parking on both sides once development in the area justifies the parking need. These changes will help bikes, pedestrians, and retail businesses thrive in the West End.
