Zoning Code Rewrite Project
As we create a City for Everyone, it is vital to our city's future to bring our community together to discuss challenges and tradeoffs with the city’s existing zoning code, and to explore how the Zoning Code Rewrite aims to create solutions for our community.
The City of Boise’s Zoning Code Rewrite is a multi-year process that involves revising the city's zoning code, which has not been updated in over 55 years. In revising the zoning code, the city hopes to create solutions that for more affordable housing, better public transit, mixed use activity centers, and more connected and equitable city.
To achieve this vision, Mayor McLean selected 20 community members for the Citywide Advisory Committee for the Zoning Code Rewrite. These 20 members represent the diverse array of geographies and people that comprise Boise. Additionally, this committee serves in an advisory capacity for the Zoning Code Rewrite process by reviewing materials, making recommendations, and providing new ideas that will help ensure the city achieves its goal of creating a city for everyone.
