Boise to charge for Saturday parking Downtown. Here’s how to avoid a ticket.

Quote:
Starting Feb. 1, for the first time ever, the city of Boise will charge people to park in its metered spaces Downtown.

Enforcement of parking fees and the writing of parking tickets will begin at 10 a.m. on Saturdays. People who leave their cars overnight can pre-pay their meters for up to two hours so that they have until noon to return and avoid a ticket.

Public weighs in on proposed parking fee, enforcement increases in Boise

Quote:
The city anticipates that by making changes to metered parking downtown, longer-term parkers will move elsewhere and there will be more "churn" in the coveted spots in front of restaurants, bars and shops. This was something the majority of downtown business owners who weighed in agreed with on Tuesday.
Quote:
The city says the uptick of events and infrastructure downtown is driving this update; studies show parking is at 90 percent capacity pretty much all day.


Remember there is a parking app for meters downtown!

This is great news since Boise is getting so much attention lately as a vacation/destination city.

Here is information regarding the Leadville Bikeway project from ACHD.

General Description

The Ada County Highway District (ACHD) is launching an effort create a successful, bike friendly alternative to Broadway Avenue on nearby Leadville Avenue. Leadville Avenue runs parallel to Broadway Avenue and serves as a connection from Southeast Boise to Broadway Avenue, Boise State University, the Greenbelt and downtown.

Why Leadville?
Leadville Avenue was first identified as a potential bikeway in the 2009 ACHD Roadways to Bikeway Plan, and again in the 2013 Southeast Boise Neighborhood Walking and Biking Plan. These plans identified Leadville Avenue as a much-needed low-stress alternative for bike traffic on Broadway Avenue.

8th Street temporary BIKE LANE/ROAD CLOSURE: the southbound bike lane and northbound sharrows on 8th street will be closed to all through traffic, including through bike movement, during the daylight work hours, starting next week and continuing until June. Please respect the barricades and the flaggers. The sidewalks will be open and usable by persons walking and biking, but are a DISMOUNT zone for bikes/boards during the work hours of the project. The road will be open when construction is not happening, but be aware, it is still a construction zone and you will need to use caution. Deliveries will still happen on this street, but the bike lane will be closed. Sandwich boards and information will be available next week.

We were invited to the construction meeting at City Hall today to get information on this closure and the work being done. 8th Street is getting some much needed work done on the sidewalks, including putting in new trees, new tree grates, permanent bike racks, new light poles, and retractable bollards at the south/north ends of this great block. This project will be done in quadrants, starting with the southwest side of the street by Ruth's Chris and ending with the southeast corner by the American Clothing Company. Please respect the closure and either dismount and walk your bikes for two blocks or find a suitable detour. It may get complicated, so watch our page for more information and some tips on movement through the zone.

There will also be work on Freak Alley/Union Alley, including finishing the paving/lighting/drainage and putting in new signage. Be aware of this work too, as it will overlap some of the work on 8th Street from March to May. (starts after Treefort)

And, finally, there will be work happening on Capitol Boulevard, including rebuilding sidewalks to include Silva cells (allows for tree growth) and extension of the protected bike lane one block north and 2 blocks south of City Hall. There will be a lot going on for this project, so we'll expect to see a big construction zone again. Patience riders and walkers, these are good things.

It's important to support the businesses in these construction zones, so show them that the bike community means business for them!
