The neighborhood association sent an email to its members Sunday encouraging them to resist developer Jim Conger’s plan to build 24 homes where Ben’s Crow Inn is located south of East Warm Springs Avenue.
If the city of Boise does approve Conger’s plan, called the Ben’s Crow Inn subdivision, the neighborhood wants to see changes.
In a February letter to the city’s planning staff, Conger said his team approached Ben’s Crow Inn owners Ben and Connie Hamilton after no restaurant or bar operators wanted to buy the 70-year-old business near where Warm Springs meets Idaho 21.
“Ben and Connie have worked this business through its ups and downs for over 40 years and have earned the right to retire and travel,” Conger’s letter reads.
Boise’s Planning and Zoning Commission is scheduled to consider the Ben’s Crow Inn project April 11. That meeting is scheduled to start at 6 p.m. in the third-floor council chambers at City Hall, 150 N. Capitol Blvd.
Ben’s Crow Inn is scheduled to stay open at least until September.
