Place Making Project Update: Freak Alley/Union Block

July 2, 2018

News & Notes


One of CCDC’s Key Strategies is Place Making – Develop public spaces and energized environments where a blend of cultures and concentrated mix of uses create a valued sense of place.







CCDC and City of Boise are working with property owners and managers to improve Freak Alley and Union Block Alley as public spaces. Boise planning staff will manage an urban design process with a stakeholder group (including ownership interests), followed by final design and construction to be managed by CCDC.  The paving of Freak Alley is complete and prep work in Union Block Alley is underway. Freak Alley is expected to be complete mid-June, and Union Block Alley mid-July.
