Energize Our Neighborhoods


New Energize Neighborhoods

In 2014, the City of Boise partnered with residents and community leaders on an initiative – Energize Our Neighborhoods – aimed at celebrating neighborhoods and improving livability. The program kicked-off in the Vista Neighborhood.

Building on the success of the work done in the Vista Neighborhood, the city, in partnership with Boise School District’s Community Schools initiative, neighborhood associations and private and public partners, is preparing to replicate the approach in a customized way for three new neighborhoods.
