Following two discussions on housing in October, the city of Boise announced three more in-person and virtual listening sessions in November and December to ensure all Boise residents have an opportunity to speak, according to a press release.

The conversations will involve housing affordability issues and the opportunity for city staff to share the outcomes of a pilot program through the Bloomberg-Harvard City Leadership Initiative’s Innovation Track that evaluated strategic opportunities with tiny homes and accessory dwelling units as part of potential solutions, the release said.

Details for the events are listed on the city of Boise website, and masks and social distancing will be required for the in-person meetings, which will be held on the following dates:

  • 6 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 18: Virtual Community Discussion on Housing
  • 11 a.m. on Thursday, Dec. 2: Neighborhood Listening Session at the Library! At Hillcrest, 5246 W. Overland Road
  • 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 15: Neighborhood Listening session at Boise State University Student Union Building, Barnwell Room (Second Floor), 1700 W. University Drive
