The developers of the hotly debated Avimor community have promised to give residents access to a 9.5-mile walking, running and cycling trail system, which developers claim will be a "first-of-its-kind western foothills launching point to the Boise Front."
Proposed by SunCor Idahoa subsidiary of Arizona's SunCor Development CompanyAvimor's proposed location on Highway 55 has Ada County residents up in arms about the community's planned size, location and proposed building on open space.
Ada County staffers are recommending that SunCor's development plans be revised or rejected completely based on several concerns, including the need for open space preservation and the potential to disturb area wetlands. Both concerns are made even more valid by the proposal of a trail system into the area.
SunCor Idaho's announcement of Avimor's proposed trail system comes just two weeks before Ada County's Planning and Zoning Commission holds a public hearing to receive public input on approval of the community's development application.
