8th Street

For Property & Business Owners

In the mid-1980s, CCDC made a number of improvements to 8th Street between Main and Bannock including installing brick pavers, historic street lights, benches, and flower planters, and widening sidewalks. The Ada County Highway District, which has jurisdiction over all local streets in Ada County, transferred ownership of this section of 8th Street to CCDC. CCDC now manages the use of the street and sidewalks from building face to building face.

Patio Dining 9

Wider sidewalks on 8th Street has allowed a thriving cafe and patio dining district to develop. Before a restaurant can use the sidewalk for a patio dining area there are two steps that must be completed. The building owner must sign a license agreement, and the tenant (restaurant) must sign a license agreement with CCDC. There is a nominal fee. Patio dining areas must be furnished and managed in accordance with the 8th Street Patio Standards. The CCDC board adopted the design standards to assure that 8th Street will be an attractive, distinctive place for customers and visitors. For more information on license agreements and design standards, contact Max Clark at 208-384-4264.

Reserved use of the street is by permission only, typically through a license agreement or an approval of the 8th Street Rental Application. Examples include the Capital City Public Market, May in Motion, and the Father’s Day Car Show. For more information contact Ben Houpt at 208-384-4264.
