Boise's urban renewal agency, the Capital City Development Corporation, meets tomorrow, and its board will consider moving forward with more analysis into a proposal that could turn up to eight downtown streets into two-way thoroughfares. In the summer of 2010, a preliminary engineering analysis was conducted. looking at the possibility of converting 11th, 12th, 13th and 14th streets from one-way operations to two way.
Following the first review, CCDC is now ready to task Kittelson and Associates to conduct a more comprehensive study, expanding the scope to include Third, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth and Jefferson streets. The first phase of the study is expected to be completed this November.
Monday will be the first board meeting since Phil Kushlan officially retired as CCDC executive director, steping down after 12 years. The board continues to hunt for his successor.
