Proposed Shoreline District

Anticipated to be Boise's next urban renewal district, the Shoreline Study Area holds opportunity to solve public infrastructure deficiencies in the Lusk Street neighborhood, revitalize the River Street neighborhood and enhance the riverfront amenities and mobility corridor along the Boise River.

The City of Boise has directed Capital City Development Corporation (CCDC), Boise’s redevelopment agency, to proceed with the Shoreline District formation process. Initial investigations began in early 2017 and, if approved of by stakeholders and partners agencies, the formal adoption of the proposed Shoreline District is anticipated to be complete before calendar year-end 2018. If completed in 2018, the Shoreline District will take effect January 1, 2019, remain an active district for 20 years, and terminate in year 2039.

The proposed district is located in downtown Boise. The study area is generally bounded by I-184, River Street, Capitol Boulevard, Sherwood Street, and the southern bank of the Boise River.

The following documents have been produced as part of the district formation process and provide detailed information about the study area, project findings, and proposed plans.
