What is Neighborhood Planning?

Neighborhood planning is an important tool promoting collaboration between the City and Neighborhood Associations to guide the future of Boise's neighborhoods.

GAP Planning

Boise serves its neighborhoods with a Geographic Area Planning (GAP) program.

  • Planners from each work group (Current Planning, Design Review, Subdivisions etc.) are assigned specific geographic areas of the City. 
  • Planners become familiar with the neighborhood associations and the unique issues facing the area. Planners assist the neighborhoods in understanding development appolications, interpreting Blueprint Boise (the City's Comprehensive Plan), and in developing neighborhood plans. GAP planners also participate in Neighborhood Night Out and other neighborhood events.

Boise's Good Neighbor Program


To celebrate and support Boise's neighborhoods, the City is proud to host a series of programs to strengthen the ties between Boise residents, to establish new connections within our community and to honor residents who set an example of how good neighbors can improve and enhance our community.  Boise Good Neighbors website
