In 2014, the City of Boise partnered with residents and community leaders on the Energize Our Neighborhoods initiative, aimed at celebrating neighborhoods and improving livability. With three main goals and eight focus areas, partners got to work in the Vista Neighborhood. We are proud to share that now not only is Energize a nationally recognized program, but that together we have surpassed expectations in what we set out to accomplish.
The Energize program expanded to three new neighborhoods in 2018: South Boise Village, West Bench and the West End. Building on the framework established in the Vista Neighborhood, these new neighborhoods are in the process of gathering resident feedback, prioritizing livability projects, and implementing change in their areas.
