Do you feel lights, sidewalks, and other safety features on your street are important? Do you find value having historic markers and public art in your neighborhood? Are you interested in receiving information about property developments and upcoming traffic projects? Then you understand some of the benefits of an active neighborhood association.
Registered neighborhood associations in Boise like the Collister Neighborhood Association:
• Receive notification of development applications.
• Receive extra time for testimony at public hearings such as Boise City Council or Ada County Highway District meetings.
• Can apply for funding through Boise City’s Neighborhood Reinvestment Grant (NRG) process.
Over the years the Collister Neighborhood Association has received grants for a variety of projects including the installations of a street light, trail markers, public art, and a bus stop shelter. We’ve also received funding for website maintenance, neighborhood signs, and a pedestrian access bridge over a canal.
An active association requires participation, but not necessarily a large time commitment. Currently all officers are elected for one-year terms. The time afforded is nominal, but the impact to the neighborhood is considerable. Other participation opportunities include researching grant applications, planning the annual picnic, and providing feedback
to officers and local legislators at association meetings.
The Collister Neighborhood is a great place to live, but it takes your active participation to keep it that way!
The Collister Neighborhood Association would like to thank everyone involved in helping make our annual picnic a special event: Cub Scout Wolf Pack 142, Edwards Greenhouse, and Library! at Collister for children's and family activities; food vendors Wheelin’ Sportsmen (grilling) and Owl Tree Bakery (cookies); Michael Shaw for providing live music; Ada County Highway District (ACHD) and Boise City Parks & Recreation for logistical assistance.
