Shoreline District – Downtown Boise Streetscape Standards Update: CCDC in collaboration with the City is updating the Downtown Boise Streetscape Standards Manual. These standards provide guidance to private development and Agency’s Capital Improvement Plan projects about streetscape improvements in the public rights-of-way within the downtown Urban Renewal Districts.
The standards currently in effect were adopted by the City in 2015 and do not include the Shoreline District project area. This update will incorporate the Shoreline District project area as well as the innovative stormwater management strategies outlined in the City’s Lusk Street Neighborhood Master Plan and River Street Neighborhood Master Plan.
The update will be reviewed by neighborhood associations, the City and ACHD before being presented for recommendation by the CCDC Board to City Council for approval and adoption in Blueprint Boise. This collaborative process is expected to begin in April 2019 and be complete by February 2020.
