Ada County approves housing development near Hidden Springs

Original plans for the Dry Creek community were filed in 2006 and approved in 2010. They called for 3,500 homes. Boise Hunter Homes scaled that back, saying the area is inappropriate for the more dense project. If the development moves forward as planned, it would be complete in 2032, according to documents on file with Ada County.

Start planning your bins now: Boise hopes to start composting service in June

The overall scope and fees for the program remain unchanged since city staff and the City Council last visited the topic in October. If it takes shape as proposed, people who participate in the composting program will pay an additional $3.40 per month. People who choose not to participate would actually pay more money — an extra $8.40 per month — because they wouldn’t qualify for a participation rebate of $5.
