Boise on the Block

8th Street with bikes and customers

The City of Boise is working in partnership with businesses and restaurants in our community, as well as key stakeholders such as the Downtown Boise Association and the Capitol City Development Corporation, to expand restaurant patio seating as our community recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic. The goal is to allow restaurants, along with other businesses, to open safely and ensure the health of residents and employees is protected by allowing for appropriate physical distancing.


The pilot modification will take place in the downtown Boise core along 8th Street, as we have more ownership of the streets and sidewalks along this corridor.

The City of Boise is actively working with restaurant and retail partners around the city to expand the program.
