Virtual Neighborhood Meeting Information
Boise Parks and Recreation is currently working on improvements to the Spaulding Ranch site located at 3805 N. Cole Rd. This year, we would like to formalize future access to the site by improving both the north and south Glenwood Street entrances and by adding a ‘right-in, right-out’ access from N. Cole Road. We would like to invite you to a virtual meeting to view the design plans for the proposed access improvements. View plans below.
This neighborhood meeting is not a public hearing and no elected officials will be present. The meeting will be held virtually via the Zoom platform on April 21, 2021 between 6 p.m. and 7 p.m.

Spring 2021 Update
In April 2021, Boise Parks and Recreation will begin the process of restoring the southwest quadrant of the Spaulding Ranch property to native habitat. Currently the area is vegetated primarily with non-native, low ecological value plant material. The restoration project will focus on establishing native bunchgrasses forbs and shrubs. In the next two-three years you can expect:
- Fencing to be placed around the restoration site
- A variety of agricultural equipment working in the southwest quadrant
- A period of time where the land is kept fallow
- Establishment of grasses followed by forbs and shrubs the following year
- Installation of irrigation and walking paths
