Neighborhood Planning

Neighborhood Planning Program

The Neighborhood Planning Program is an opportunity for the City’s Comprehensive Planning Division and neighborhood associations to work together at a neighborhood level to guide the implementation of the City’s Comprehensive Plan, Blueprint Boise.

Throughout the planning process, the city and neighborhoods collaborate to identify goals, concerns, aspirations, priorities and vision. This process helps the city and association to refine existing and/or develop new tools to meet community objectives.

Neighborhood associations can apply to participate in the Neighborhood Planning Program through the Energize Our Neighborhoods Investment Program.

Completed neighborhood plans are adopted into Blueprint Boise by reference and become guiding documents for both city planners and the neighborhood association.

Neighborhood Associations

Neighborhood planning is a collaboration between the city and neighborhood associations to guide the future of Boise's neighborhoods. Boise uses a Geographic Area Planning (GAP) program that assigns city planners to specific neighborhoods so they are familiar with the unique issues facing each area.

Planners help neighborhoods understand development applications, interpret Blueprint Boise (the city's Comprehensive Plan), develop neighborhood plans and prepare Neighborhood Reinvestment Grant applications. They also participate in National Night Out, annual meetings and other neighborhood events.
