Utility upgrades and expansion work includes upgrading and undergrounding power, new underground fiber, and phone lines, and expanding the sewer mainline.

 This second phase of New Path is a permanent supportive housing development comprised of 96 multi-family units and space for ancillary support services. This project is being developed by Pacific West Communities, Inc. with Low-Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTC) and support from the City of Boise. This development will provide affordable housing for individuals and couples who are experiencing homelessness or facing homelessness and earning less than 60% of the area median income for Ada County, though residents will be earning substantially below this. There is an estimated $250,000 in eligible expenses for streetscape and public utility upgrades. The Board designated the project for Type 3 Transformative Assistance participation in May 2023 and approved a final agreement in October 2023. Project Lead: Alexandra Monjar


West End Water Renewal Infrastructure- PP Type 4: The City of Boise is undertaking the construction of a new lift station and pressure discharge pipe needed to serve multiple incoming mixed-use developments in the 27th Street and Fairview Avenue area. These improvements will provide the backbone to replace miles of substandard gravity sewer lines as further development happens at the western end of the 30th Street District. The city has requested a 50/50 cost share for funding this important project and CCDC has committed approximately $1.6 million. The Board approved the final agreement in April 2023 and construction is underway on the lift station site with an anticipated completion date of fall 2024. Project Lead: Doug Woodruff
