Citywide Advisory Committee

Zoning Ordinance Rewrite

Individuals from across the city and from a range of backgrounds and industries are encouraged to apply. This includes, but is not limited to: citizens at large, housing interests, developers, architects, engineers, bankers, realtors, land use attorneys, conservationists, business owners, neighborhood association members, builders, community organizers, and more. Ultimately, our intention is to convene a committee that represents a localized voice that is both diverse and geographically representative of the city as a whole.


The CAC will serve in an advisory capacity by providing recommendations that will be shared with the project team, elected officials, and the public.

Members are expected to review and offer feedback on draft documents as they become available, and to broadly share the perspectives of the group, organization, or community they represent. Members will also be asked to engage in constructive dialogue with other members of the committee, likely representing different interests. Members selected for this committee are intended to be representative of the city as whole, as well as the many users of the city’s zoning code to include representatives from the development and design community, nonprofits, neighborhood associations, citywide residents and business owners.

Meeting Frequency

Members meet monthly for the duration of the project, expected to last 30 months. Meetings are typically two to four hours and are located at Boise City Hall. Meetings will be held remotely while Stay-Home Orders are in effect.


  • Applications are due on August 7, 2020 by 11:59 PM.
  • Applications must include a resume that details experiences and qualifications.
  • Committee members must be residents or own property within the City of Boise or its area of impact.

All members will ultimately be approved by our Technical Advisory Committee, Mayor McLean and the City Council.
