Ada County Public Hearing: Penitentiary Canal Greenbelt Project

  • Ada County Courthouse 200 West Front Street Boise, ID, 83702 United States (map)

The Ada County Board of Commissioners are holding a public hearing on Tuesday, July 11th at 6:00PM at the Ada County Courthouse to consider passing a resolution for the use of $1,329,125 in forgone taxes to support costs associated with the Penitentiary Canal Greenbelt Project:

The proposed project involves piping the Penitentiary Canal and creating 1.65 miles of wider, safer, and smoother pathway for all users.  This pathway segment is located between Shakespeare Way and Diversion Dam.  If approved and adopted as part of the FY18 Ada County budget, construction on this project can begin in October.  If you are a Greenbelt Pathway user we encourage you to attend and testify on this topic.

More information regarding this particular segment of the Greenbelt Pathway can be found at the 1:32 mark of this video shot by The Idaho Statesman this spring:
