Public Seating Available Now for Mayor Bieter's State of the City Address on Sept. 12

Boise residents interested in attending Boise Mayor David Bieter’s 2018 State of the City can register now.

Co-hosted by the Boise Metro Chamber of Commerce, Mayor Bieter’s annual address will be held this year at the Morrison Center for the Performing Arts – giving interested Boiseans more opportunity to attend. The Sept. 12 event begins at 4 p.m.

“We are excited to be at the Morrison Center this year primarily because the bigger venue allows us to open up more seats for the public,” Mayor Bieter said. “It also gives us an opportunity to showcase Boise art, culture and music in ways we haven’t been able to do before.”

The address will feature the City of Boise’s two Cultural Ambassadors – the Morrison Center and Global Lounge. Also, singer Eilen Jewel, a Boise native, and the Boise-based contemporary dance troupe LED will perform as part of the event.

Mayor Bieter’s address is free and open to the public, but those interested in attending are asked to register by Aug. 31.

“This is my yearly opportunity to talk about our work to create a Boise that will make future generations proud,” Mayor Bieter said. “I plan to highlight how we are focused on preserving those things that make our city so special and confronting the things that threaten its precious livability. It’s an important front-and-center conversation for our entire community right now.”

The address will be followed by a Lusk District Celebration after-party, hosted by the Chamber. Those interested in purchasing tickets for the Chamber’s after-party in the Lusk District of downtown can do so here.
