Preserving Boise's Heritage
With their historic houses and tree-lined streets, Boise’s older neighborhoods form a critical part of the city’s character and sense of place. Historic Preservation is not about slowing or hindering development, but rather not overlooking the value of what we already have. The City of Boise's intent is to encourage high quality development while protecting the heritage of Boise's historic districts.
To preserve that heritage, the City of Boise has designated Historic Preservation planning staff and a Historic Preservation Commission.
