When the Boise City Council meets Tuesday, they will take up a series of agenda items ranging from commission appointments to a second reading of the proposed anti-smoking ordinances.
But council members will also consider a unique exception: to permit an old-school neighborhood bakery to be allowed to do business in a family residential zone. The proprietor, Carrie Peterson, is asking to locate her business, Sol Bakery, at 3910 W. Hill Road, to serve a customer base in the Collister neighborhood. In addition to the bakery, the applicant is proposing a co-op kitchen and retail shelf space to sell local food items.
The Boise City Planning and Zoning Commission has already recommended approval of the request. The City Council will have the final say.
