News Update on CCDC Projects in the 30th Street URD
Formed in December 2012, the 30th Street URD runs along 27th Street, Whitewater Park Boulevard and encompasses the West Main Street and Fairview Avenue corridor.
2403 Fairview – Adare Manor – P Type 2, 4: The development is well under construction and plans to be complete by the end of 2019. The combined participation is about $730,000 for public improvements adjacent to the development.
2200 Fairview – New Path Community Housing – PP Type 1: New Path Community Housing opened to residents in November 2018. CCDC has provided the project developer with information on the reimbursement process and is waiting to hear back from the developer. The Type 1 Agreement not-to-exceed amount is $120,000 for streetscape improvements. New Path Community Housing is Idaho’s first permanent supportive housing development using the Housing First approach to help the chronically homeless. The project is complete and is full. CCDC has committed up to $150,000 for the reimbursement of public improvements associated with the development.
301 29th St. – Whittier Elementary – PP Type 4: Students toured the new school for the first time on January 22. A video of the tour can be viewed below. Students had their first day in the new school on January 28. CCDC staff will reach out to find out when the School District will be ready to work on the reimbursement documentation for the public improvements.
Main Street and Fairview Avenue – Street Configuration: ACHD will be re-striping both streets generally from four lanes to three lanes with parking-protected bike lanes this summer. CCDC currently has no partnership role in this effort.
30th Street URD – Urban Renewal Plan Amendment: Since 2017 CCDC has been involved in discussions regarding the development of a sports park. In the event the development is to use CCDC financing and is in the 30th Street URD, it is likely that an amendment to the urban renewal plan will be necessary. Agency stands ready to assist and anticipates direction in the near future.
30th Public Art – COB Traffic Boxes – PP Type 4: Arts and History has issued the Call-To-Artists to select artists for the project, with the selection panel scheduled for March 4. The T4 Agreement between CCDC and the City of Boise is on the February 11 Board Meeting agenda for approval.
