BOISE, Idaho — The public will soon have a chance to weigh in on a big plan to improve State Street between 27th Street and Horseshoe Bend Road. The 20 year project would be funded through tax increment financing, or TIF. The goal would be to raise property values in the district and use the tax dollars brought in by those property values to fund the project.

The Capital City Development Corporation (CCDC) is heading the effort, which will include open houses and public meetings with citizens, businesses and commuters who use the busy road to get to downtown Boise.

CCDC commissioners will vote May 18 on whether to approve a contract with a consulting company that will start putting the plan together. To learn more about the project, click here.
