The City of Boise is dedicated to enhancing the public realm in all its forms. The Mobility and Public Spaces team focuses on creating welcoming and inclusive public spaces in all areas of the city. By reimagining and activating public spaces like streets, streetscapes, plazas, and pathways, the Mobility and Public Spaces Program is committed to ensuring vibrant and active spaces are accessible to all.
Creating people-focused public spaces offers a variety of benefits to Boiseans and supports the city's mobility, safety, economic and environmental goals. Expanding Boise's great public spaces, like the 8th street corridor supports local businesses and provides a comfortable place for people to connect, socialize, and experience the community and outdoor spaces.
