A City ofBoise tree pruning project is expected to delay Greenbelt users Feb. 13-17 in East Boise. The project extends from the Kimberley One townhomes to Municipal Park on the north side of the Boise River near Walnut Street.
Boise Parks & Recreation Community Forestry crews plan to remove damaged trees and limbs along the pathway.
The project will allow crews to safely prune the trees while improving the health of the urban forest, according to Steve Markel, a city arborist. Community Forestry is responsible for the maintenance of 41,000 trees in public parks and rights of way.
Flaggers will help guide pedestrians during the five-day project.

On February 6th the Boise Planning and Zoning Commission gave approval to a conditional use permit for a 4-story mixed use building to include 68 residential units, 5 live work units and 5,250 square feet of retail space. A height exception, parking reduction, and variances from the front and street- side setbacks, are included in this request.
Does this mean East Boise’s black hole will be filled with a building? Continue reading “Quasar property (916 Park Blvd) approved for mixed use building” »
