Volunteer Opportunities


Hello, Neighbors!

We are beginning the first phase of a collaborative process to address traffic and safety concerns on Harrison Boulevard. Our hope is to create a model process for integrating the input of the community, historical preservationists, ACHD, and the City of Boise to make streets safer for all
users. Data collection will include speed studies using radar guns as well as pedestrian/bike/auto counts at several intersections. If you can donate a few hours of time to this exciting project, or if you would like any additional information, please contact us at:

Thank you!


The NENA Board of directors currently has several openings and we're seeking neighbors who are interested in getting involved to fill the roles.  

If you'd like to volunteer for the NENA Board, please fill out the Recruitment Committee Application

The application deadline has passed -

Thank you for your interest!
