Community Conversations

Boise residents can be proud to live in one of America’s most successful cities. But our community’s quality of life has attracted new residents and investment. As we grow, we must ensure that we can retain our livability.

Community Conversations are an opportunity for Boise residents to come together to talk about key issues through facilitated small and large group conversations. Findings from these sessions are shared with the Mayor and Boise City Council to help inform future policy decisions.

Community Conversations on Transportation

In early May, the city hosted a series of Community Conversations focused on transportation. In this series, participants had the opportunity to identify transportation concerns throughout the city and provide feedback on the city's transportation priorities for the future.

Community Conversations on Growth

In 2018, the City of Boise hosted a series of broad community conversations. The focus of the first series of conversations was on growth and housing. These conversations helped the city:

Four major themes from the workshops were housing affordability, transportation, cultural and environmental preservation and governance. To explore these issues more deeply, Mayor Bieter is inviting both participants in the first workshops and any other Boise residents who want to join this conversation to sign up for the second round of Community Conversations on Growth.
