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 Ave – Adare – PP Type 2, 4:  Northwest Integrity Housing Company’s affordable housing development is complete and actively leasing units. The combined participation agreement is for approximately $730,000 for public improvements adjacent to the development including streetscapes and utility work. This development is on ground leased from the City of Boise for forty years and was awarded to the developer through a competitive process. It includes 134 for-rent apartments. The majority will be for families earning less than 60% of the area median income or about $44,000 per year for a family of four with approximately 10% serving market rate rents.

301 29th St – Whittier Elementary School – PP Type 4:  Construction at Whittier Elementary is complete. CCDC conducted an on-site inspection and reviewed and approved all cost documentation required for reimbursement for Eligible Expenses per the Type 4 Agreement. The reimbursement of $540,000 for streetscapes, utilities, road reconstruction, and a public plaza space will be made in early December to the Boise School District.

30th Street District – Urban Renewal Plan Amendment:  In the event Agency funding is involved in the development of a sports park or related infrastructure, and it is located in the 30th Street District, it is likely that an amendment to the 30th Street Urban Renewal Plan would become necessary.

30th Street District Public Art – City of Boise Traffic Boxes – PP Type 4:  The T4 Agreement between CCDC and the City was approved by the Board on February 11, 2019.  Artists were selected and traffic boxes were assigned in March.  Art content was approved and the wraps were fabricated and installed over the summer.  Project is complete.
