Re: “Boise Parks and Rec Asks Bench Neighborhood to Design a Park

A year around pool would be an awesome addition to our city, and something we do not yet have!

Re: “Boise Parks and Rec Asks Bench Neighborhood to Design a Park

3 Acres? A playground, a walking path, a shaded area with benches for lunching/meeting, and an open area for games, exercise, or gatherings.

Re: “More Spokes in Boise Bike Week's Wheels

Teaching future cyclists that they don't deserve to have a safe place to ride. Suck it up and be a car, otherwise you deserve to get hit by the driver on a cell phone. Mother-fucking ridiculous!!! As long as ACHD, ITD and the City of Boise defer to the BBP mafia, we will have more of the same, bikes and helmets for kids just to be trained to manage near death encounters with the good folk drivers of Idaho. Do Idahoan's know how to protest? or are they afraid? or are they just wimps? And yes, I have been to your committee meetings, volunteered and donated my money to the groups. Question is, will these groups ever step up to real change, or will they all become non-profits that somehow turn a profit to buy buildings?

Re: “Thru-Hiking the Idaho Centennial Trail

See this blog for first-person information about hiking the ICT - http://idahocentennialtrail.blogspot.com/

I would add that the wilderness sections of the ICT are better-maintained than those sections outside of the wilderness, especially in N. Idaho ... make sure you take a GPS with you!

Re: “Boise Receives 'Silver' Bicycle Friendliness Rating from League of American Bicyclists

Boise Weekly: Thank you for representing concerned cyclists in Ada County in the past several years in reporting on bike infrastructure. However, Boise is a Bronze Minus as best, with a string of bicycle fatalities.

Is The City of Boise or Ada County actually considering safety in their infrastructure planning?
https://thebluereview.org/7-years-boise-bicycle-crash-data/

There has been a recent study in Ada County and the City of Boise that may influence the safety aspect of the recent League of American Bicyclists rankings. Up until now there has been very little (if any) analysis of the bicycle accidents in relation to bike infrastructure done by these governing agencies. Within this crash data there is significant evidence that the infrastructure in Ada County and the City of Boise are simply political window dressing doing little to improve public safety.

Re: “Boise Receives 'Silver' Bicycle Friendliness Rating from League of American Bicyclists

IMO, our community is still severely lacking in any formal effort at "rider education" (although Boise Bicycle Project is making a valiant effort to fill the gap). And "enforcement of bicycle-friendly laws" is essentially nil. Unless it has recently changed under the direction of Chief Bones, the stated position of the Boise Police Department is, "Bicycle violations are not a priority for the Department." They are happy to ignore the bicycle component of our community transportation, unless an accident is involved.

But, perhaps the recognition as a "Silver City" will be a motivator to make things better.

(The infrastructure and "culture" keep getting better.)
