Best Reason to Build an Ice Cream Shop

The Vista neighborhood meeting

Staff Pick

In June, the city of Boise embarked on a quiet, yet revolutionary project to mine the community for data, neighborhood by neighborhood. The survey, Energize our Neighborhoods, kicked off at the Whitney Community Center on the Boise Bench and focused on Vista Avenue. Residents sat down with representatives from various city departments to talk about jobs, parks, crime and sustainability. The goal was to build a grassroots vision of what's happening in Boise neighborhoods and how to make improvements. Among the takeaways from that first meeting: Vista Avenue really needs is an ice cream shop. We'll take two scoops of civic engagement any day.
