This article also gives us some interesting information as to WHY it took such a tragic accident for safety changes to be made: the land is owned by the Simplot family, and only the mansion was given to the state. This was a roadblock for law enforcement who had been asking for No Parking well before the young boy had ever been injured.
Hello, I just wanted to thank Boise Weekly and George Prentice in particular for doing the work to write this article. I believe it is easy to ignore small but significant changes like this and I'm proud to know there are people who still care about the safety of our children – even at the risk of changing a place with such a storied tradition in so many residents hearts.
