Boise Neighborhood Interactive


Boise Neighborhood Interactive

Energize Our Neighborhoods is proud to host the 2nd Annual Boise Neighborhood Interactive on February 16, 2019. The event’s theme will be “Creating Community: Cultivating and Sustaining Neighborhood Identity."

Boise’s current rapid growth presents opportunities for our community to build on the strength of our history, while planning for a future of connected neighborhoods and engaged residents. Today, some parts of the city have a well-established identity, where neighbors share a sense of culture and community they call their own. Other areas have an opportunity to begin developing those same connections. Creating and sustaining unique and desirable neighborhoods is important to all Boise’s residents.

The Boise Neighborhood Interactive’s mission is to empower and engage residents, helping them take responsibility for creating and sustaining welcoming and livable neighborhoods.

Targeting residents at all levels of engagement, this community conference aims to build capacity at a neighborhood level and provide information, training, and resources to help people be involved in their community. Whether you’re a veteran of the city’s 34 registered neighborhood associations, or a newcomer waiting to be engaged, the conference will have something to inspire you.
