City of Boise seeks public comment on Hillside to Hollow master plan

The public is invited to attend one of two open houses to participate in  the visioning process for  the Hillside to Hollow Reserve Master Plan.

Open houses are planned at 6 p.m. Monday, March 3 and at noon Wednesday, March 5 at the Highlands Event Center, 2590 N. Bogus Basin Road

Questions to be discussed at the meetings include:
•       What resources should be protected?
•       What amenities should be included in the reserve?
•       Where should trailheads be located?

The Hillside to Hollow Reserve was created in 2013 with the acquisition of 260 acres with funds from a serial levy approved by voters in 2001. The City of Boise-owned property is adjacent to the 58 acre Harrison Hollow natural area, owned  by the Land Trust of the Treasure Valley.

If you are unable to attend, please feel free to submit comments at:

The deadline for public comment is 5 p.m. March 15.

Feedback provided online and at the public meeting will be incorporated into a proposed master plan, which will be presented at meetings in late spring or summer. The completed master plan help guide management decisions and resource allocations when funding becomes available.
