Keep in mind if a developer or homeowner comply with existing permitting codes. they are entitled to build. If the City refuses the grant approval, it is liable for taking a property right.

Re: “Homegrown Boise Neighborhood Protest Results in Homegrown Compromise

It's a tough balance. Higher density, but still single family, housing (a.k.a. infill) keeps traffic and long commute air pollution down for all, but has to be balanced with the character of the neighborhood. The city needs to create house size/lot size constraints as well as consider street/garage parking. Builders/developers will need to be flexible and creative to accommodate parking needs while minimizing disturbances to neighbors. Neighbors need to be flexible and understand that landowners have property rights to respect. It sounds like this was a case where all those aspects were met for a compromise solution. We need more middle ground solutions like this - there's no "me" in compromise.

Idaho Power seeks changes for solar customers

Associated Press

BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Idaho Power officials are asking state regulators for permission to make big changes to how solar customers pay for their power.

The utility company announced Thursday it wants to create a new class of customers for homeowners and small businesses using renewable energy. Their request is now pending before the Idaho Public Utilities Commission.

At issue is a practice called "net metering," which mandates that homeowners and small business owners who install solar panels be compensated for any surplus energy they feed back onto the grid.

Idaho Power officials argue the current system wasn't designed for homeowners who installed their own solar panel and warn traditional power customers are shouldering the extra costs.

However, solar panel advocates counter that Idaho Power's request will create a second-class of customers who will likely face hefty fees.

Re: “Boise Ordinance Dials Down Muffler Noise

I havent see any enforcement whatsoever. 8PM on a Saturday night and the cars are screaming, without a cop in sight, downtown. Will this be enforced the same way? if so, then it's pointless.

Re: “Boise Ordinance Dials Down Muffler Noise

Disturbing, excessive or offensive motor vehicle noise, smoke, or exhaust interferes with a person's right to enjoy life and property," reads the ordinance, which goes on to state its purpose as promoting "the public health, comfort, and convenience of the City's inhabitants and its visitors."
With that being said wouldn't that infringe on a person's right to enjoy life and their property. That is how some people get enjoyment in their life even if their vehicle and or motorcycle is a little on the loud side even from the factory. No matter what laws are passed there will always be people that are offended in some shape or form let's stop the government from putting more rules and regulations on a place where we call the land of the free

Would be great to target Fri/Sat cruise & street racing. Detriment to downtown business, tax base, and property values. Chase 'em back to 2C.

A neighbor, in an apartment complex, has a muffler that sounds like a 65 foot Chris craft motor boat and it's driving me nuts!

Please start with motorbikes and the noisy careless reckless dickheads who ride them. They have higher emissions than cars and trucks too.

Several days ago I provided the Boise Police with detailed information regarding the identity of this guy. After quite the media stir, there has been no follow up. Please BW, dig into this.
