City of Boise Survey on COMPASS Planning

Every four years, metropolitan planning organizations such as COMPASS undergo a federal review to determine if federal planning requirements are being met to ensure that federal transportation funding continues to flow to the region.

In May 2022, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and Federal Transit Administration (FTA) will review the COMPASS regional transportation planning process. To help conduct the review, FHWA and FTA are soliciting public feedback and comments on COMPASS and its planning efforts.

The City Club of Boise and League of Women Voters of Idaho, Greater Boise Area are partnering to host a public forum for candidates for Boise City Council on Thursday, October 14, 2021 at 12:00 p.m. MT via Zoom.

During the 2020 legislative session, the State passed a bill (HB413) requiring cities with populations over 100,000 people to create districts for City Council elections. For the upcoming 2021 election, Boise City Council seats 1, 3, and 5 will be up for election using the new geographic districts and for two-year terms. Click here for an interactive map to find your City Council district based on your address.

The forum will be held live on Zoom from 12:00 p.m. MT through 1:30 p.m. on October 14, 2021. This forum is free and open to the public, and will be recorded for broadcast on Boise State Public Radio and archived on the City Club of Boise YouTube channel.

All candidates who are in 2021 Boise City Council election contests have been invited to participate in the forum.

West End Logo Winner!

We are pleased to announce the winning logo for the West End Logo Project by Kelly Knopp is Logo 3! This logo really captures the unique features of our neighborhood including the surf wave, the river and the Greenbelt, our proximity to other great parts of the city, while standing out from many of the other neighborhood logos. It was the clear preference among members with over 60% of the votes. 

We received 242 votes through an online survey and in person voting between May 15th through June 20th. The results are as follows:

West End Logo Vote Totals242
Logo 1208.26%
Logo 27430.58%
Logo 314861.16%

We will continue to work with the artist to colorize the winning logo design. Once completed, the neighborhood association will have full rights to the logo for use on future materials. The logo will be used for marketing on our website and other social media platforms, neighborhood swag, letterhead and hopefully sign toppers around the neighborhood (a grant application has been submitted). 

If you have any questions about this ongoing project, or the voting process, please contact us at westendboise@gmail.com.
