Plant a Tree

SCNA is exploring ways of working with the city of Boise and the Treasure Valley Canopy Network to plant more trees. Please visit https://www.tvcanopy.net/ and https://city-of-trees-challenge-boise.hub.arcgis.com/ to learn about the programs.

Representatives will be on hand at our National Night Out event, August 3, 5:30 – 8:00, at Chow in the Spectrum complex at Cole and Overland. You can find out more about the program, volunteer, and see if you qualify for a free tree.

Boise School Board Meeting

The Boise School Board is meeting today at 5:30pm, 8169 W Victory Road. The meeting is open to the public, but no public testimony. Send your comments to the school board by email. I posted the school board emails addresses previously.

While I do not see it on the agenda, I have been told that one item will be the approval of the annexation of school property. The annexation is necessary to connect the city north of Victory to Murgoitio Park. Once a small piece of the city touches Murgoitio Park, the city can cancel the Murgoitio Park plans and put in high density housing.

Several people on social media have indicated that they plan to protest. Here is a link describing your first amendment right to protest. Know Your Rights. Please read it. Please follow the guidelines. If you do protest, do not disrupt the meeting, do not block people from entering the building, do not try to intimidate, and especially no violence or vandalism.

EnergizED Workshop: The Power of Diversity

The city of Boise offers workshops for neighborhood leaders. There is one scheduled for tomorrow.

This is a friendly reminder that the last installment of our EnergizED series on Building a Foundation for Neighborhood Equity, The Power of Diversity, will be offered tomorrow (April 28) from 12:00-1:00 PM via Zoom.

To receive the Zoom link you must register for the event – you can find the registration link here: https://www.cityofboise.org/programs/energize/energized-workshop-series/

This workshop will feature a discussion on shifting our collective narrative from problems in/of the community to the possibility within our community. Participants will discuss how to seek opportunities to engage with neighbors who may not have participated in events or associations in the past. Each will walk away with tangible ways for removing barriers to participation.
