Community Visioning Events
A Visioning Event brings neighborhood residents together to develop a shared vision for where they live, work and play. No idea is too big or small - the goal is to think creatively and passionately about future investments that support the neighborhood's shared vision. Over the Spring, Summer, and Fall of 2018, the Energize team held multiple Visioning Events in the South Boise Village, West Bench, and West End neighborhoods to collect feedback from residents.
In the Spring, each neighborhood will have the opportunity to prioritize the projects most important to their areas, and begin moving forward to implement those ideas.
