The city of Boise is seeking to amend its development code to modify uses and dimensional standards in areas zoned PC (pedestrian commercial).

Boise’s Planning and Development Services Department also wants to change zoning from C-2 (general commercial) to pedestrian commercial in areas where officials say the change would better meet a neighborhood’s residential character.

The area is located along the State Street corridor between 11th and 19th streets and on the Main Street corridor between 16th and 22nd streets.

A hearing on both changes will be held at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 15, at Boise City Hall.

Laren Bailey of DevCo Real Estate Development is seeking to transfer 4.2 acres at 14120 W. Jasmine Lane from Boise’s area of impact to Meridian’s.

The firm is working on a proposed subdivision that would be in both cities’ areas of impact, but a letter from the applicant’s lawyer said it would be “easier and less costly for the project to be developed” fully in Meridian. A hearing on the request is set to take place at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 8, at Boise City Hall.

Jeff Likes of ALC Architecture is seeking the rezone of 1.3 acres at 10990 W.

The city will hold a hearing on the zoning at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 15, at Boise City Hall.

Meridian

Sandy Law and Kent and Nancy Bleak want the city to annex and rezone 9 acres to build 41 single-family houses at the northwest corner of Cherry Lane and Black Cat Road. The developers of the subdivision, to be called Millbrae, also plan to include amenities like a children’s playground, a picnic shelter and pathways.

In October 2018, the Meridian City Council approved a subdivision called Verraso Village North by Chad Olsen of Envision 360 that would have allowed for 56 units in a mid-rise apartment building at 3543 E. Tacate Lane, near the southwest intersection of Eagle and Ustick Roads. Olsen is now going back to the city to request a modification to the development agreement that would decrease the number of apartments from 56 to 36. Another park was also added to the center of the project.

Last year, the city of Meridian approved an apartment project called Movado Subdivision at 4107 E. Overland Road near the Silverstone subdivision. Now, its developers, the Bienapel Family Limited Partnership and Dave Evans Construction, want to update the development agreement so they can build additional multifamily units, a commercial building and townhouses. The project would add 204 residential units to Meridian.
