Boiseans Invited to Discuss Affordable Housing at Third Community Conversation on Growth Series

Boise residents are invited to delve into the issue of housing affordability as part of the City of Boise’s third round of Community Conversations on Growth on November 29 and December 1.

In the third series, Boise residents will have the opportunity to provide feedback on a variety of tools and techniques the city is considering implementing to impact housing affordability in the future.

Hundreds of Boise residents participated in the first two rounds of Community Conversations on Growth meetings held in June and August. In those sessions, citizens from across Boise came together to discuss and chart Boise’s future by developing and exploring the four major themes of housing affordability, transportation, preserving what makes Boise so special and governance. More background on the previous two sessions can be found here.

“Boise’s success has created many opportunities for our community, but also some challenges,” said Boise Mayor David Bieter. “In our conversations with Boiseans, affordable housing has been a consistent theme and we have some ideas on ways the city can have an impact. We’d like to hear what residents think about those plans.”

The city will host two opportunities for the third series, with the Dec. 1 session including Spanish translation services. Both workshops are open to all Boise residents and each session will cover the same material, so RESIDENTS ONLY NEED TO SIGN UP FOR ONE SESSION. Workshop capacity has also been expanded, allowing more individuals to attend and share feedback. Questions can be sent to communityengagement@cityofboise.org.
