As I write this, a blanket of snow has arrived to cover our Foothills—a sign of the changing seasons and a reminder of our responsibility as Boiseans to protect what makes our city livable. Our citizens stepped up to that responsibility on Election Day in November, when more than 74 percent of voters said “yes” to a two-year, $10 million levy for Foothills open space and Boise River preservation. The results—a landslide by any definition—are a testament to just how strongly our citizens feel about the need to preserve our city’s unmatched natural assets, wildlife habitat, water quality, and recreation opportunities. The $10 million generated by the earlier 2001 Foothills Levy has resulted in the protection almost 11,000 acres with a value of more than $37 million. After a decade and a half, the fund from that measure is almost depleted, so approval of the new levy comes just in time. As we’ve done before, the city will appoint a citizen committee to recommend the most compelling priorities for preservation of open space and clean water, and cost-effective ways to address them. In the meantime, plenty of recreation opportunities beckon right now. Boiseans know that wintertime is still fun time, and our Parks and Recreation Department offers plenty of chances to get out and enjoy the snow—or stay indoors and take up a new hobby. And of course, people from across the region are looking forward to another season of snow sports at Bogus Basin—and are just as eagerly awaiting the results of the Beyond 75 Feasibility Study, which will help chart the future course for Bogus Basin and perhaps help turn the resort into a truly year-round attraction. One thing I’ve learned in almost 12 years as mayor: The people of this great city know how fortunate they are to live here, and they are willing to work hard so they can play hard. With the levy election, the Beyond 75 study and much more, they’re proving their commitment to working hard; now let’s all get out there and have fun. Enjoy!

BOISE DEPOT RENTALS

BOISE DEPOT

The Boise Depot is a unique venue for weddings, parties and corporate parties and fundraising events. A beautiful historic Spanish-style structure operated by the Boise Parks & Recreation Department, the Depot was opened in 1925 to elaborate fanfare in the capital city. The former Union Pacific passenger train station can accommodate 300 maximum occupancy; 165 for sit-down events. Depot amenities include The Great Hall, a 3,542-square-foot space with a soaring multistory atrium. The Great Hall once served as the building’s waiting room. The original 1925 Barkalow Brothers Newsstand is featured on the west wall. The wood and glass newsstand has been slightly restored but remains in its original form.
