“North Boise also encompasses the dynamic downtown area, which is a weekend hot spot with dozens of restaurants, bars, clubs and theaters.  Already home to numerous fine restaurants, lively nightclubs and one-of-a-kind shops and businesses, it seems more are springing up al­most daily.  The luxurious Grove Hotel on Capitol Boule­vard features a sculpture of the Boise River.

 

Along with the gorgeous rooms and ameni­ties, the hotel also is home to the Idaho Steel-heads, a minor league hockey club.

 

If Hyde Park is the heart of the North End, the downtown certainly is the soul.  And there is probably no better place to renew the soul than Julia Davis Park.  Situated along the Boise River, Julia Davis Park is home to Zoo Boise, the Historical Museum, the Art Museum and a number of events including concerts, arts and crafts shows and festivals." As reported by staff of the Idaho Statesman September 24, 2000.

 

“Nestled between the Foothills and down town, the historic North End is one of Boise's signature neighborhoods.  Sidewalk cafes and antique shops mixed with stunning Victorians, Queen Ann-style homes and small bungalows make the North End attractive.  Its close proximity to down town also makes the North End a desirable place to live.

 

Residents and visitors enjoy a variety of of­ferings at the eateries in Hyde Park.  And Camel's Back Park, which just received a new playground this summer, is a main drawing card of North Boise.  The heart of the North End is Hyde Park an area of shops and restaurants that feels like a separate village within the city.  Long an area where home renters and homeowners were split nearly half and half, that has changed over the past few years.  Many homes built in the late 1800s and after the turn of the century are being purchased and refurbished by young families.  Property values and housing prices are increasing every year.

 

The finest example of this resurgence is stately Harrison Boulevard, a showplace of Boise's storied past.  Large homes lookout over the broad avenue.  Trees line both sides of the street as well as the wide median the middle.  Residents of Harrison Boulevard are known throughout Boise for their lavish holiday decorating, particularly on Halloween.

 

However, North Enders are alarmed by increasing traffic, which they say threatens the future of their neighborhood.  New proposed housing development in the Foothills including Somerset Ridge Phase II will generate more traffic, maxing out North End streets such as 15th Street, Harrison Boulevard and Hill Road.  The North End Neighborhood Association, one of the most vocal groups in City Hall, is or-gnarling a legal defense fund to pay for legal challenges to development decisions."  As reported by staff of the Idaho Statesman September 24, 2000.

 

It is a popular area for families in the higher income brackets.  Almost 50 percent of North End residents have kids below the age of 18.  The Boise School District serves this area."  As reported by staff of the Idaho Statesman September 24, 2000.

 

Boise School District, Idaho’s largest School District had 26,700 students enrolled in 2000." As reported by Bill Roberts staff of the Idaho Statesman September 24, 2000.

 

"The Treasure Valley also is the home of the nation's second largest grocery chain, Albertson 's Inc.  The Boise-based Company opened Idaho’s first Sav-on drugstore in Boise's North End in June 2000.  In the previous year, Albertson's merged with American Stores Co., which was Sav-on's parent company." As reported by staff of the Idaho Statesman September 24, 2000.

 

Only 18 of the 392 North End homes sold in 1999 were new con­struction, According to the Ada County Associ­ation of Realtors.  86 sold by the end of December 2000 of which 1 was new construction.  By the end of December 2001, 96 homes sold of which 4 was new construction.

"Northeast Boise also gives instant meaning to Boise's title of City of Trees.  Beautiful trees not only grow along the river, but also spread throughout the neighborhood.  They are nowhere more evident than in beautiful Municipal Park, a riverside playground with popular covered picnic shelters. The park hosts company picnics for many of Boise's biggest and most successful corpora­tions and family get togethers of all sizes. 

 

And added attraction is the adjacent MK Na­ture Center, an educational park celebrating the beauty of Idaho.  And Warm Springs Avenue serves as a ma­jor route to the fishing, boating and water-ski­ing on nearby Lucky Peak Reservoir.  The Boise School District serves Northeast Boise. As might be expected in an older neigh­borhood, many of the schools are in older buildings.  Academic achievement in these schools remains high.

 

As also might be expected in an older neigh­borhood, retail centers are at a minimum. Northeast Boise has two small retail areas at either end of the traditional residential section of Warm Springs Avenue.  It also includes the northeastern section of downtown Boise.

 

Boise School District, Idaho’s largest School District had 26,700 students enrolled in 2000." As reported by Bill Roberts staff of the Idaho Statesman September 24, 2000.

 

The popularity of Northeast Boise is reflect­ed in the housing prices."  As reported by staff of the Idaho Statesman September 24 2000.

“The East End of Boise is the only neighborhood in Boise that can boast a 100 year old historic district, direct access to the Foothills, the Greenbelt and the Boise River.  These three characteristics have made the East End an attractive spot for homebuyers and outdoors enthusiasts.  Residents can easily access the Foothills and Table Rock from Quarry View Park on the eastern edge of the neighborhood.  A new foot­bridge spanning the Boise River has improved neighborhood access to the Greenbelt.  And the neighborhood's celebrated Warm Springs Av­enue Historic District is easily the ambassador of the East End.  The elegant homes, many or­namented with sandstone from the famous Table Rock quarry, reflect the traditional neighborhood's character and history.

 

The East End Neighborhood Association is also one of the most active and professional or­ganizations in the city. East Enders were one of the first neighborhoods in the city to complete a neighborhood plan, which becomes a layer of the city's comprehensive plan and repre­sents a consensus for the future vision of the area.

 

East End leadership often appears before the City Council and the Planning and Zoning Commission to defend the historic neighbor­hood from adjacent development, including Harris Ranch and Boulder Heights Estates that generate cut through traffic.

 

Existing East End neighborhoods include older homes built along a grid of narrow, quiet streets tucked away between Warm Springs Avenue and the Foothills.  They meander up in-to the Foothills along labyrinthine roadways serving newer hillside developments.

 

Homebuyers will find everything from the historic South Boise Village along Boise Av­enue - the former path of the Oregon Trail -to Columbia Village, a modem 1,400-home neighborhood at the eastern edge of the city.

 

At its far northwest tip is Boise State Univer­sity's riverside campus and the no-nonsense houses and apartment buildings in the univer­sity district.  From there, it spreads out in a fan shape, tak­ing in a variety of neighborhoods and retail centers.

 

Near the university is Park Center Boule­vard.  Clean and green, Park Center Boulevard is lined not only with flowering trees but also with the corporate headquarters of one of Boise's biggest corporations, Albertson's Inc.  Before it ends, Park Center Boulevard winds along the edge of exclusive riverside develop­ments, including River Run that many corpo­rate executives call home.

 

These developments have immediate ac­cess to the Boise River Greenbelt, the walking and biking path that winds along the river through habitat rich with eagles and other wildlife.  The Greenbelt, the city's pride and joy, also connects with Barber Park, operated by Ada County as the “jumping off” point for residents tubing or rafting the Boise River during the summer.

"Much of the recent history of Southeast Boise could he termed “before Micron" and “af­ter Micron."  The success of the high-technology company and the housing needs of its work­ers have made Southeast Boise a trendy place to live.  In addition, infrastructure development and retail development are occurring near the Mi­cron site.

 

Southeast Boise ranks as one of the city's most diverse neighborhoods, an eclectic mix of the styles of more than 100 years of Boise's history.  Homebuyers will find everything from the historic South Boise Village along Boise Av­enue the former path of the Oregon Trail to Columbia Village, a modern 1,400 home neighborhood at the eastern edge of the city.

 

Southeast Boise takes in the bustling Broad­way Avenue, one of the city's traffic arterials and home to a variety of retail establishments. Just east of Broadway Avenue is an expanse of quiet residential areas that includes Lake-wood, one of Boise's first planned communi­ties built in the 1970’s.  Southeast Boise is also the home of Idaho's largest employer, Micron Technology Inc., a Boise-based manufacturer of semiconductors.

 

The Greenbelt, the city's pride and joy, also connects with Barber Park, operated by Ada County as the "jumping off" point for residents tubing or rafting the Boise River during the summer.  Southeast Boise parks also include the Simplot Complex, a 150-acre sports com­plex at Columbia Village." 

 

“Students in the neighborhood attend schools in one of two districts - Boise School District or Meridian School District.  The Boise School District has built new schools to accommodate the growth in Southeast Boise in the last few years.  The district’s newest high school, Timberline opened at the former site of Les Bois Junior High.  A new Les Bois Junior High opened at the same time in Columbia Village.  The schools serve a majority of Southeast Boise students than those in other areas of Ada County. 

 

Boise School District, Idaho’s largest School District had 26,700 students enrolled in 2000." As reported by Bill Roberts staff of the Idaho Statesman September 24, 2000.

 

"The Sargents and Mason already have started on another New Urban development.  The new project, in Southeast Boise, is called Cottage and will include homes and garages behind the homes accessed by allies.  Sargent said that while the city promotes New Urban development in concept, the Ustick has been delayed because of building stipulations that require him and Mason respectively appear before the city.

 

Developers Ron Andrea Sargent and Ted Mason are constructing the mixed-use, pedestrian-friendly development along Ustick Road.  It will include a two-story building designed to look like an old-fashioned storefront.  The building will be pushed up to the street with a sidewalk running its entire length.

 

Regulations about shared driveways and other rules requiring balcony access for every second floor apartment have been the most recent holdups.  Balcony’s would not match the architecture of the building, so Mason and Sargent will be asking the city for a variance, or exception, to the rule.

 

“The city has done a lot in passing pedestrian commercial zoning,” Sargent said. “There are still a lot of details and specifics that don’t fit”.

 

Planning staff and city officials are still working out details in the ordinances that should clarify the process for approval, Simmons said.  “It’s a balancing act, and we are still trying to find out the right set of standards,” Simmons said.  “(Ideally) if you follow the ordinance you don’t need to go through a bunch of discretionary hearings.”  Butt developers should not expect design controls and other building requirements to be eliminated, said Simmons.  “We can't just take city the standards and let them do what they want.  If we do, we are likely to end with suburban style of development,” Simmons said. Because Southeast Boise is a desirable place to live, housing prices are somewhat higher " As reported by the Idaho Statesman, 2000.

“Residents in the Central Bench area work hard to keep their neighborhood healthy as it ages.  Nearly one fourth of Boise's residents live in the Central Bench, a neighborhood with a unique character while subdivisions in newer areas of the city are carefully segregated between small and big structures, in the Central Bench big homes stand next to small, which sometimes border a pasture. The result is an unpredictable collage, giving each block its own feel.  Area residents’ work hard to protect it.  The Vista Neighborhood Association and Depot Bench Neighborhood Association, both serv­ing the Central Bench, have reputations as be­ing among the most active neighborhood groups in the city.

 

While the Vista Neighborhood Association already has a plan to guide growth in the neighborhood, the Depot Bench Neighbor­hood Association is crafting a new one. The two neighborhood groups also are working to­gether with city officials to establish a historic lighting district in the neighborhood.  Residents have been active in Neighbor­hood Watch programs and in working to cut down on junk cars, unkempt properties and other eyesores.  A recent study by the city iden­tified a section of the Central Bench as an area to watch for signs of decay.

 

Because of the mix of housing, home prices vary as well houses sold in the Central Bench are almost exclusively houses.  The Central Bench differs from other Neighborhoods in another way: Residential areas are strictly residential, while retail de­velopments are along major thoroughfares.  Those major thorough-fares include Overland Road, Vista Avenue and Orchard Street, all among the city’s main arterials - and all lined almost exclusively with commercial development.   The neighborhood is served by the Boise School District.  Older Students in this neighborhood attend Borah High School.  It also is served by two Junior high schools and numerous elementary schools.

 

The Central Bench is home to Bishop Rely High School, a Catholic high school with a reputation for high achievement in academics and athletics."  As reported by staff of the Idaho Statesman September 24, 2000.

"The rural mindset of the neighborhood also has led to the concentration of retail develop­ment along the neighborhood's northern edge-most of it on Overland Road, just south of In­terstate 34.  The neighborhood also is served by small re­tail centers, such as those at Lake Hazel and South Five Mile roads and at Indian Lakes on South Cole Road.  Residents are anxious to see more parks de­veloped in Southwest Boise.  Plans are under way for Molenaar Diamond Community Park, a 20-acre park, as well as a 163-acre park that would be Boise's largest.

 

Boise School District, Idaho’s largest School District had 26,700 students enrolled in 2000." As reported by Bill Roberts staff of the Idaho Statesman September 24, 2000.

 

Neighborhood housing prices vary between the Meridian school districts.
