Community Discussion on Housing

Neighborhood Listening Sessions

The City of Boise is facing a housing crisis. While we are focused on ensuring there is a place to live for everyone who chooses to call Boise home, at every price point, it will take innovative solutions and committed partners to build homes for Boiseans.

Over the next several months, the City of Boise housing team will be out in the community – both in-person and virtually – to meet with residents and hear first-hand the impacts of housing affordability on them, their families and neighbors. If you would like to provide additional feedback, please contact the Energize team.

Tiny Home + ADU Pilot Program

The City of Boise is currently re-evaluating underutilized spaces to determine strategic opportunities that include Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) and tiny homes. The city will present the Tiny Home + ADU pilot program and seek input on how this solution could be incorporated in the community. Findings from these sessions are shared with the Mayor and Boise City Council to help inform future decisions to meet the growing needs of the community.
