West Downtown Neighborhood Plan

Please join us for a family-friendly event to share your vision for the West Downtown Neighborhood. The kick-off and visioning block party will include stations to learn more about the goals of the neighborhood plan and provide residents and neighbors the opportunity to share what they would like to see incorporated in the neighborhood plan. There will also be a local food truck, activities and games.

You can share your neighborhood perspective by completing the online survey that will help inform the plan. The survey is open through June 14 and can be found at www.westdowntownboise.com/neighborhood-plan/.

The West Downtown Neighborhood Plan is a collaboration between the City of Boise, the West Downtown Neighborhood Association (WDNA), CTA Architects Engineers, residents and business owners to plan for the neighborhood’s future.

The purpose of developing a neighborhood plan for West Downtown is to craft a vision and set community-held preferences to guide the growth and inform decisions impacting the neighborhood for the next 10-12 years. Gathering community input is key to this process, and we appreciate your interest in sharing your thoughts.
