Boise, the city and businesses together, are leaders in building sustainable city infrastructure that represent climate action by cleaning the air, water & reducing urban heat; all while creating vibrant spaces for residential and retail growth. Join us to learn how, through a collaborative stakeholder-driven effort, local businesses invested in revitalizing the Broad Street festival corridor that blends new development with retention of historic homes and landscapes.
Where we will stop along Broad Street in Downtown Boise: Mother Earth Brewing, Boise Brewing, The Warehouse.
Three key aspects of nature based planning and building solutions will be explored during our walking / biking tour along Broad Street: (1) How weaving an infrastructure of greenspace makes our city healthy and cool!; (2) A vision for mass timber construction opportunities in the Treasure Valley, learning from the Idaho Central Credit Union Basketball Arena at University of Idaho; (3) How our urban forests are finding new life at the tabletops of eateries & breweries across our region.
