Mayor Bieter Proclaims September as Neighborhood Month

Boise Mayor David Bieter proclaimed the month of September, which is also National Neighborhood Month, as Neighborhood Month in Boise.

Mayor Bieter’s proclamation (see below) is part of the City of Boise’s Energize Our Neighborhoods initiative and kicks off a month of neighborhood events and social media challenges for Boise residents of all ages. Energize Our Neighborhoods is a collaboration between Boise’s residents, public and private partners, and the City of Boise to keep our neighborhoods unique and desirable. 

“Boise’s neighborhoods are what make our city so successful,” Mayor Bieter said. “Each has a unique character that adds to the overall fabric of our city’s livability. This September, Energize Our Neighborhoods is bringing residents and neighbors together to celebrate and enhance the community each neighborhood enjoys. I hope everyone will join us and do their part to bring their neighborhood together.”
