“A city's streets are more than just a means of transportation, a way to get from point A to point B. Rather, they are a city’s greatest community and civic asset. While they allow for the travel of cars, bikes, and buses, they also allow for the travel of ideas and information, be it a protest march, a celebratory parade, or a serendipitous encounter on a daily walk or while running an errand. In this regard, Downtown Boise has some of the best streets in America, and I'm grateful to have played some small part in that.”
Matt’s job is all about travel within Boise. He manages the seven public parking garages that CCDC wholly or partly owns, with more than 3,400 parking spaces serving downtown. He’s also responsible for coordinating mobility initiatives with community partners such as Boise GreenBike and City Go, and leads the effort to establish a redevelopment district focused on Transit-Oriented Development along State Street. Through these efforts, Matt and CCDC seek to promote economic development and contribute to the livability and sustainability of the city.
Prior to joining CCDC, Matt was a senior transportation planner at the Ada County Highway District, where he managed the Integrated Five-Year Work Plan and served as the Bicycle & Pedestrian Coordinator for Ada County. Before his time in civilian public service, he served as an aviation officer and Chinook helicopter pilot in the U.S. Army.
Matt holds a master’s degree in public administration from Boise State University and a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. He is a member of the American Institute of Certified Planners and has earned the CTAI I-way Leadership Award and the Compass Leadership in Motion Award for Leadership in Practice.
