You may recall that originally these applications also contained the annexation and sale (for high density housing development) of Murgoitio Park. The Murgoitio Park portion was removed last month just before the P&Z meeting. So Murgoitio Park is not on the agenda for this meeting. I suspect that the city will try to curtail any testimony about the park.

Murgoitio Park is still for sale

There has been a lot of enthusiasm on social media after the news came out yesterday that the Murgoitio Park land swap is off. It may be premature to celebrate.

Today at the City Council work sessions, Parks is going to do a presentation on the true value of the land and recommend that the city “surplus” (i.e. sell) the land. Basically they could not push through the sweetheart deal for the developer, so now it appears that they will sell it to the highest bidder.

Hearing Notification Changes

The Boise city council will hold a hearing on the matter March 9, 2021, 6:00pm.

The changes (by my reading, if this is important to you, please read it yourself) increase notification by mail to 500 feet, and reduces the size of the signs posted on the property to 11×17.

Personally I do not care about the mailing radius, and I do not like the smaller signs.
