GUEST SPEAKERS – MARTY JACOBS
Marty introduced the following:
DAREN FLUKE – DEPUTY PLANNING DIRECTOR
We’re a hot, booming town. We need to have think about infrastructure and growing vertically.
CLAY CARLEY – OLD BOISE
We need to get our politicians to focus on downtown and the transportation challenges we have and
will have. We’re going to be “Denver” in the next few decades. This is a beautiful city and we need to
preserve its character.
DAVE MORRIS – YMCA DOWNTOWN
As a cause-driven organization, the YMCA provides financial aid for all residents that need it. They
have serviced Boise’s downtown for over 100 years. The building is not healthy and they are
currently trying to determine whether they should tear it down and rebuild it or start bit by bit
UPCOMING PROJECTS – KENNY WERTH, DBNA BOARD
“Looking forward to new activities and opportunities for the neighborhood in the upcoming year. Our
neighborhood association is on the steering committee for the Boise Neighborhood Interactive
Conference. The Boise Neighborhood Interactive’s mission is to empower and engage residents,
helping them take responsibility for creating and sustaining welcoming and livable neighborhoods.
That is coming up on February 19, 2019 at Borah High School. We are brainstorming ideas for our
2019 neighborhood grant and we would love to hear from you, the neighbors. Share any ideas with
us! Finally, we will be having our second annual Spring Fling coming up next year. Date and location
TBD. Please, Like us on Facebook, follow us on our new Instagram page, and check out our website.
We’ll keep you updated.”
