Best Reason to Register to Vote

A new Boise Foothills levy will be on the ballot in November

Staff Pick

On Tuesday, Nov. 3, the citizens of Boise will have the opportunity to vote on a $10 million levy for foothills land acquisition and Boise River conservation. The levy is similar to the first foothills levy, passed in 2001 for $10 million, but this is only has $1.6 million left. With that money, the city saved land around Table Rock, Hulls Gulch, Dry Creek, Military Reserve, North Collister, Stack Rock and Hillside to Hollow from future development. The new levy intends to go broader than the first, including using funds for restoration around the Boise River as well as other open spaces beyond the foothills.
