Boise is booming, construction is everywhere and the city is not really all that conservative. The current big dilemma in the Boise area is handling the growth but some of the smaller outlying suburbs are resistant to the growth which they will have to give into at some point. Prized farm land out in the rural areas is being consumed with homes and commercial developments in order to handle the growth of people moving here from Washington, Oregon, and California.
