Just a reminder that our January Board Meeting is scheduled for Tuesday January 25 at 7pm at Adams Elementary. We are fortunate to welcome a special guest to our meeting–Bryan Huey who handles Business & Neighborhood Relations for the Ada County Highway District. Bryan will be available to answer questions from the neighborhood regarding ACHD. If he isn’t able to give a complete answer on the spot he will research and get back to you with the answer. We look forward to seeing all interested residents on the 25th.

Porch Talk is a quarterly newsletter produced by the Mayor’s office and the City of Boise to help inform neighborhoods of upcoming events and other activities which may be of interest.
Here is a link to the most recent edition:
Boise City Code 9-08-07 – Removing snow from sidewalks - states that the owner of a building (home, business, church, etc) is to keep their sidewalks clear of snow every day. http://www.cityofboise.org/Departments/City_Clerk/PDF/CityCode/Title9/0908.pdf Usually, snow melts quickly here and doesn’t last long enough to be a concern. However, when the snowfall sticks, it’s important that we shovel it off our sidewalks.
Boise City Zoning Enforcement handles this complaint, and can be reached at 384-3840 if you have questions or want further information.
A little Boise trivia: The ordinance was first written in 1922 and updated in 1952. One of the reasons the code was written was to allow Boise Police Foot Patrols to cover their beats safely. Now that we have many more sidewalks than in 1952, the issue now is for the safety of our residents.
We can look on this as our winter ‘neighborhood get-together’ – shoveling snow together ! Take care and be safe!
