North End Plan
The North End Plan will be a long-term community vision for the North End Neighborhood that will help inform city and neighborhood association decision-making for the next ten years. The plan will help guide change to benefit the community and ensure it reflects community priorities. The plan, which will be reviewed and adopted by City Council, will be the final product resulting from a yearlong public process driven by input from residents, the North End Neighborhood Association, local business, and other stakeholders.
Because neighborhood plans are intended to supplement the City’s Comprehensive Plan, Blueprint Boise, the North End Plan will also guide how citywide goals and priorities are implemented at the neighborhood level.
The City of Boise, in collaboration with the North End Neighborhood Association, local businesses and other stakeholders, spent over a year creating the first draft of the North End Plan. Community members have several opportunities to provide input:
- Tune into the Plan Presentation
- Complete the North End Neighborhood Plan survey
Once community feedback is received, the City of Boise will incorporate the updates and present the updated version to the Planning and Zoning Commission at a public hearing in spring/summer 2021. At that time, the Planning and Zoning Commission will have the opportunity to recommend next steps, including an adoption by Boise City Council.

Past Participation Opportunities
Neighborhood Visioning Workshop (Community Workshop and Survey #1)
Neighbors were invited to attend the Neighborhood Visioning Workshop at North Junior High on Tuesday January 14 to learn about the planning process and to participate in activities to help develop the vision for the North End Neighborhood Plan. City staff gave a short presentation about what is a neighborhood plan and next steps for the planning process. The project team estimated over 150 neighbors in attendance.
Neighbors were also encouraged to share their vision for the North End neighborhood via an online survey. The survey was open from December 15, 2019 to January 27, 2020. The project team received 478 responses to the online survey.
Below are links to summary documents for both the workshop and online survey.
Neighborhood Goals & Objectives Workshop (Community Workshop and Survey #2)
On March 12, about 40 neighbors gathered at North Junior High to provide feedback on the draft Goals and the Objectives for the North End Neighborhood Plan. Neighbors also participated in a hands-on facilitated session with City Staff to identify potential projects about housing, transportation, community engagement, and the environment.
An online survey and interactive online map were also available for neighbors to provide feedback during this phase. The survey was open from February 27 to March 31, 2020. The project team received 143 responses to the online survey.

Neighborhood Plan Project Prioritization Survey
We used feedback from the previous community workshops and surveys to develop goals and a list of projects to be included in the plan. In the Project Prioritization Survey, neighbors shared feedback to prioritize those projects.
The survey was open from June 02, 2020 to June 28, 2020. The project team received 521 responses to the survey.
Accompanying the survey were five informational posters located throughout the neighborhood. Each poster served as a way to advertise the survey and provided more information about the plan’s goal areas and projects.
