    Citizens, city, county clash over Hammer Flat subdivision
      The 700-acre Hammer Flat plateau, located near Lucky Peak Reservoir east of Boise, is critical habitat for deer, elk and antelope in the cold months. But furry ungulates aren't the only creatures interested in Hammer Flat. Last spring, a local developer purchased the property with the intent of building a 1,400-residence community on the plateau. Now local advocates, experts and Boise City officials are expressing concern that the development would eliminate the wintering grounds for Idaho wildlife, including the largest mule deer herd in the state.
