Energize Our Neighborhoods


What is Energize Our Neighborhoods?

Energize Our Neighborhoods is a collaboration between Boise’s residents, public and private partners, and the City to keep our neighborhoods unique and desirable. It focuses on aligning community resources to improve livability and make measurable change.

Energize Our Neighborhoods is an innovative model that will be used throughout the City. By focusing on individual neighborhoods and using data as a road map, we will increase economic activity, improve safety, provide additional services and create more vibrant and connected neighborhoods.

The first target area is the Vista Neighborhood.

Mission: Working with residents to energize and enhance the livability of our neighborhoods.
