Our newsletter is unique among Boise neighborhoods, and we are thrilled to have this community-building tool. If you are interested in helping with the newsletter (writing, taking photos, delivering a route), please contact the editor at stephanie@northendboise.org.

This issue, we would like to send out a huge thank you to several neighborhood businesses & non-profits that helped us honor our volunteers. It takes more than 50 volunteers to produce and deliver the newsletter each issue. They were honored at a celebration May 19.

Redevelopment of the Booth Home

NENA recently commissioned Idaho Smart Growth to conduct several community workshops in order to refine a vision for the future of the Salvation Army’s  Marian Pritchett School / Booth Home property. The property, at 24th & Bella streets, is being sold by the Salvation Army as it moves the Pritchett School to a new campus in West Boise.  The future of the historic, tree-filled North End property is of great concern and interest to the neighbors. It is a full city block’s worth of history and of new potential. Idaho Smart Growth compiled a report outlining residents’ vision for the site.
