Plans for Proposed Sherman Hollow Go Before ACHD Tonight


Some residents of Boise's Foothills are expected to show their displeasure this week and next week at a couple of public hearings regarding plans to build a new development in the small canyon above Sherman Street.

Before developers can proceed, they would need a green light from the Ada County Highway District since Sherman Street is already considered a narrow passage into the canyon. ACHD will meet on the issue tonight. Next Monday, Boise's Planning and Zoning Commission takes up the plans for the 27-home development, which would be called Sherman Hollow.

This isn't the first attempt to build in the canyon. A similar plan stalled in 2008 when ACHD nixed the idea.
