Boise West Bench Neighborhood Pedestrian & Bicycle Plan

We are excited to announce that the final draft of the Ada county Highway District’s (ACHD) Boise West Bench Neighborhood Pedestrian & Bicycle Plan has been completed and is now available for public review on the ACHD website. A link to the plan is provided below.

http://www.achdidaho.org/Projects/PublicProject.aspx?ProjectID=235

The Plan is tentatively scheduled to be presented to the ACHD Commissioners for possible adoption on Wednesday evening, August 28, 2013.

Please log on to the ACHD prior to the meeting to verify Commission agendas which are subject to change.

The Commission meeting will begin at 6 p.m.; however, this project is one of several agenda items and may not be the first item discussed. ACHD staff will make a brief presentation followed by an opportunity for public comment before the Commission takes action. Comments are welcome at anytime and can be sent to projects@achdidaho.org or 3775 Adams Street, Garden City, Idaho 83714.

ACHD would like to thank The City of Boise, and every member of the public who took the time to provide valuable input to create The Southeast Boise Neighborhood & Bicycle Plan.

We look forward to your comments!
