01 Mar City of Boise Public Works Plan to treat Boise’s used water
We are currently developing a long-range plan for how we treat Boise’s used water. A crucial element of this planning process is gathering community feedback to ensure decisions made today reflect the true priorities of residents moving forward. To do this, the city is hosting a series of listening sessions in early April. As a member of the Central Rim Neighborhood Association we want to make sure you are informed about this process and invite you and your neighbors to share your input.
The plan will provide a roadmap for Boise’s water renewal utility for the next several decades. It will outline ways to protect the river, treat used water, methods to maximize resources, determine financial implications and establish the level of service residents expect from the utility.
The city will have lots more ways to share input. We’ll be developing a citywide survey that you can share with all your members. That will be ready mid/late March, and we’ll email it out to you when it’s ready. Additionally, we’ll be hosting two listening sessions to educate community members on future opportunities and gather feedback on these ideas. The city will also host a live town hall event on Facebook for people who may not be able to attend the in-person meetings. The dates of the meetings are as follows:
Tuesday, April 3 | 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. | Library! at Bown Crossing (2153 E. Riverwalk Drive)
Thursday, April 5 | 1:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. | Facebook Live (facebook.com/BoiseCity)
Thursday, April 5 | 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. | Boise Watershed (11818 W. Joplin Road)
