Where Will Boise Smokers Be Allowed to Light Up? Take a Look 

Parcels in Ann Morrison, Julia Davis parks selected, discussions ongoing regarding Grove

With only five days until the City of Boise's new anti-smoking ordinances go into effect, smokers could be wondering exactly where they'll be allowed to light up come Jan. 2, 2012. Citydesk has learned that the city is prepared to designate smoking areas in Boise's two largest parks, but discussions are still ongoing as to where, if any place at all, should be designated for smokers outside the Boise Centre on the Grove Plaza.

Amy Stahl, Boise Parks and Recreation community relations coordinator, told Citydesk that smoking will be allowed in the northwestern corner of Ann Morrison Park, close to Americana Boulevard and the park's duck pond.

As for a designated area in the Grove Plaza, Pat Rice, executive director of the Grove Centre, told Citydesk that a proposed smoking area might be a 30-foot by 6-foot area between the center and the Wells Fargo Building. However, the Capital City Development Corporation is still discussing whether to allow any smoking at all on the Grove. Craig Croner, City of Boise's administrative services manager, told Citydesk that discussions concerning a designated smoking area near the Grove Plaza are still ongoing.
