  • At an earlier community forum, the public got the chance to place stickers next to the designs they liked best for the new CWI Ada County campus.


At the beginning of September, the College of Western Idaho a show-and-tell of designs for the new campus it wants to build on Main Street next to the Boise River.

Attendees of the open house at Whittier Elementary School placed stickers next to the designs they liked best for the new 10-acre campus. 

On Tuesday, Sept. 22, CWI is offering another chance to give feedback to CTA Architects and Engineers, who are heading up the project. This time, the concepts for the urban campus in Boise's West End incorporate feedback gathered in early September. 

The presentation starts at 6:30 p.m., followed by small group discussions. The event is scheduled to last until 8 p.m., once again at Whittier Elementary (310 N. 29th S.). 

CWI landed in the hot seat after it acquired the land for $8.8 million, though it was only assessed for $3.6 million. In July, another appraisal of the parcel's market value showed it to be $8.975 million.
