Land Use & Transportation Committee
The Land Use and Transportation Committee serves as a forum for the discussion and evaluation of land use and transportation development that affects the Boise Neighborhood. The Committee may also take a position in favor or in opposition to issues that effect the short and long term livability of the neighborhood.
Committee meetings are held on the 4th Monday of each month from 7-9 pm at the Q Center. The public is welcome and encouraged to participate. Agendas are included in monthly email newsletters. You can also find them on our Facebook page.
