The Boise Planning and Zoning Commission is scheduled to take up developer Jim Conger’s Rush Valley project June 5.

Conger, a seasoned residential developer, wants to build 420 homes on 110 acres near the Sunny Ridge and Painted Ridge subdivisions outside Boise’s eastern boundary. He is also asking the city to annex the 110 acres.

The homes will vary in size from 1,400 square feet to 2,500 square feet, according to a letter Conger submitted to the city. They will take advantage of the area’s views; the nearby Lucky Peak State Park; hiking, bicycling and rock climbing; and quick access to the Boise River, Interstate 84, major employment centers such as Micron Technology’s headquarters to the west, and the Simplot Sports Complex.

A representative of Conger’s company said Tuesday he didn’t know how much the houses will cost or when they’ll be built.

The project could eventually include commercial space, depending on market conditions, according to Conger’s letter.
