Sunset Neighborhood Plan
The Sunset Neighborhood Plan will be a long-term vision document that is reviewed and adopted by City Council to supplement Blueprint Boise, the city’s Comprehensive Plan. The finished plan will guide change within the neighborhood for the next 10 to 15 years and will include a vision, a list of goals, and implementation strategies.
The neighborhood planning process will engage the entire Sunset Neighborhood, including residents, neighborhood association members and leadership, businesses, schools, nonprofits, and many others to develop a shared plan. Because neighborhood plans are intended to supplement the City’s Comprehensive Plan, Blueprint Boise, the Sunset Plan will also guide how citywide goals and priorities are implemented at the neighborhood level.
Given the rapidly changing circumstances with the COVID-19 Pandemic, Sunset neighbors will have multiple ways to be involved in the planning process ranging from online surveys and meetings to physically distant drop-in office hours at Sunset Park.
Current Participation Opportunity
Join the Neighborhood Plan Committee
One element of the planning process is to convene a Neighborhood Plan Committee (NPC). The 8-12-member committee works with the City of Boise and a planning consultant to advise on the proposed public engagement efforts and to guide the development of the plan content. NPC members are residents of the Sunset Neighborhood or represent a nonprofit, school or business located in or serving the neighborhood.
The committee will meet once a month for two hours for the duration of the planning process which is expected to last 12 months. Meetings will be held either virtually via Zoom or at Sunset Park.
The Sunset Neighborhood Plan team is currently accepting applications for members of the Neighborhood Plan Committee. Our goal is to ensure that the committee represents the diversity of residents, businesses, and interests within the Sunset Neighborhood.
About the Sunset Neighborhood
The Sunset Neighborhood is the area between State Street & Hill Road from 28th Street to 36th Street. Below details some existing demographic, housing, and transportation data that will shape the development of the plan.
Past Planning Efforts
30th Street Area Master Plan:
The City of Boise and ACHD initiated a cooperative effort to work with businesses and residents to shape the 30th Street area’s future. The plan boundaries include the Veteran’s Park neighborhood and portions of the North End and Sunset neighborhoods (south of Irene from State Street to 23rd Street). The document provides guidance concerning land use, transit services, pedestrian and bicycle facilities, streetscapes, redevelopment initiatives, the use and development of key City-owned properties, and investment in recreation within the area.
