We won at Planning and Zoning (P&Z) when the commissioners denied Prominence on Hill Road! They found that Prominence had many of the flaws of sprawl developments: lack of fire coverage near the flammable foothills, lack of nearby jobs, creating more traffic into the city core, and incompatibility with the farmland to foothills Hill Road corridor. In addition, they found that Boise Blueprint called for identifying an appropriate mix of land uses with the residents in this exact area, which we are accomplishing with the creation of our neighborhood plan. Let's allow the planning process to finish before we discuss irreparable changes along Hill Road!
Even if you have done so in the past, now is the time to let City Council and Mayor Bieter know your thoughts on the 288 unit Prominence Development, including a three story apartment, proposed for Hill Road . We need to tell our elected officials how important it is to uphold the P&Z decision.
We've made it really quick and easy -- will only take you a minute or two!
