There is much to be said and to be heard. The Kurisu Corporation is attempting to get the use of the green space grant in order to further a larger semi-veiled project on their property, the community can approve this public grant for private purposes or decide to wait on it until something better comes along. |
The DFZ has been a particularly hot issue, two months ago a city attorney came to the BNA and gave a presentation on the joy and civility of the DFZ, the BNA voted to support it in September. In October a public defender came to the BNA and presented the other side, the horrors and unconstitutionality of the DFZ, and the BNA voted to deny the DFZ. Then there was a community discussion organized by the city where folks could ask candid questions and learn more about the DFZ, the reportback can be found here or here (with supplemental information). This month the BNA will decide on whether or not it supports the DFZ in the Boise neighborhood.
And community board elections. All spots are open for running, at the last meeting where folks could be nominated for a position only three people were nominated (including myself, running for land use chair). This leaves alot of open spots on the board, and commuity members are encouraged to come out and participate.
For the minutes of past and future BNA meetings, use this website: boisevoice.org, you can also find BNA updates at N4N here. Hope to see all you folks out participating in your communities!"
