The City of Boise has compiled a master list of all City created and led plans, and those of other agencies in which the City is involved in implementing. Approximately City 120 plans were reviewed, plus an additional 56 plans owned by outside agencies that heavily impact the City of Boise.
As part of this effort to compile and organize a master list of all city created and led plans, the Comprehensive Planning Team has identified a list of plans that need to be retired or updated as part of this year’s Blueprint Boise minor update. As a result of the review, 11 plans have been identified for potential retirement and 31 plans have been identified to be adopted into the plan. The retirements and updates were submitted as a Comprehensive Plan Text and Land Use Amendment on March 31, 2020.
In general, plans relevant to the growth and functioning of the city are adopted by reference into the Comprehensive Plan and continue to incorporate the latest versions of adopted plans. This process, which includes the retirement of plans that are out of date, assists city planners, policy makers, residents, developers and other agencies in focusing on the plans most pertinent to their efforts. The plans proposed for adoption or retirement as a part of this minor update are outlined below and represent those that have been largely completed and/or superseded or integrated into more recent documents, as well as those that been in use and need to be added for a more complete document.
