City of Boise Pathways Master Plan Released

November 8, 2021

The City of Boise has completed its Boise Pathways Master Plan, which identifies safe, reliable off-street walking and biking pathways throughout the city to increase connectivity and allow for people to get around without depending on a vehicle.

The built-out network will bring together a total of 110 miles of new pathways, in addition to the 50 miles of existing pathways, putting the majority of Boise residents within a half-mile of a pathway.

“The Boise Pathways Master Plan builds onto one of our city’s most treasured assets, the Boise River Greenbelt,” said Mayor Lauren McLean.  “This robust network will connect our residents to economic opportunities, recreation and everywhere in between, without the reliance on a vehicle.”

“Supporting safe bicycle and pedestrian connections has always been a priority for the City and I am proud we are able to expand on our current pathways. The planned expansion of pathways takes the idea of the Greenbelt and extends it to every neighborhood in the city so all Boiseans can enjoy connections and improved quality of life that brings,” said Council President Elaine Clegg.

City of Boise staff in partnership with Alta Planning, engaged the community on various aspects of the Plan to better understand opportunities and challenges with existing pathways to ensure that both are incorporated into the future vision for the pathways network.

The Boise Pathways Master Plan will be presented to the Planning and Zoning Commission on December 13, 2021 and then will go to Boise City Council in early 2022. To review the final plan and interactive story map, visit the Boise Pathways Master Plan website.
