South Boise Village

Energize Our Neighborhoods selected South Boise Village for upcoming projects.

Visioning Events

A visioning event brings neighborhood residents together to develop a shared vision for where they live, work and play. No idea is too big or small; the goal is to think creatively and passionately about future investments that support the group's shared vision.

Throughout 2018, stakeholders had multiple opportunities to provide their feedback.  Using an online survey and in-person events, a total of 9 visioning events were held, with 160 total participants providing their feedback about neighborhood projects.

In 2019, stakeholders were invited to an open house event and provided a mail-in voting option to prioritize neighborhood projects and will begin collaborating to implement those projects.


Thank you to everyone who attended the Open House or mailed in your postcard. A total of 145 votes were received, and Energize will begin moving forward on the two projects that received the most votes:

Pedestrian / Bicycle Crossing | Focus Area: Transportation

This project will be on Boise Avenue at Manitou Avenue. It was selected based upon the following feedback:

  • Better connectivity and safe access to amenities, like parks
  • More pedestrian and bike-friendly
  • Safer crossings on busy streets

Walking path | Focus Area: Healthy Communities and Transportation

This project will be at Garfield Elementary. It was selected based upon the following feedback:

  • Access to pedestrian-friendly walking areas, pathways and trails
  • More green pace and recreational opportunities
  • More opportunities to engage and connect with neighbors

If you are interested in being involved in either of these projects, please fill out the form below.
