District Formation Process

Establishing the Shoreline District is a multi-step public process that relies on input and feedback from the general public, key stakeholders, consultants, and agency partners.

An eligibility study completed in October 2017 has determined that the Shoreline Study Area meets state statue requirements and is eligible for urban renewal. Boise City Council adopted the Eligibility Report and directed Capital City Development Corporation (CCDC) to begin the formation process to create the Shoreline District. The formation process includes conducting an economic feasibility study, infrastructure deficiency assessment, and a public improvements master plan.  Information from all of these efforts will be reviewed with the public and then compiled into an Urban Renewal Plan for consideration and possible adoption by the Boise City Council and the CCDC Board of Commissioners by the end of 2018.

If adopted by Boise City and recorded with Ada County in 2018, as anticipated, the proposed Shoreline District will remain an active district for 20 years.  During the district’s term, the neighborhood will benefit from CCDC’s ability to assist in economic development projects, make infrastructure improvements, implement mobility initiatives, and create placemaking projects.
