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.

Live armadillos are hard to come by, but they abound as road kill in Texas!

Re: “Campaigning for Cannabis in Idaho

I wish the family, and others in this same situation, all the best, but to not hold out too much hope. It's a race by the legislature to see which measure - Add the words or medical marijuana - gets approved last..

Re: “ACHD Puts the Skids on Boise's Bike Lane Proposal ... Again

How is it that ACHD won't approve bike lanes, yet they've apparently approved narrowing of the lanes on Capital just before Main in order to accommodate valet parking for USBank?

Re: “Boise Co-op Refines Giving Policy

If the Co-Op is to be sustainable in the face of increasing competition in the city, it needs to have a more controlled approach to business. That means more accounting for where donations are sent and how much and approved by whom. It's a very unfortunate truth of the new normal.

Re: “Demon's Delight Challenge at Superb Sushi

I think you'd need to wear gloves, cuz when you head to the bathroom later you're going to have another kind of burn you're not going to want!
