A three-party development agreement about transportation improvement for the Boise campus expansion plan received approval March 15 at a meeting of the Boise City Council.
The three-party agreement between St. Luke’s, the City of Boise and the Ada County Highway District (ACHD) outlines roadway improvements, bicycle and pedestrian connectivity enhancements, and the expected timeline for construction.
The next step will be an Ada County Highway District Commission public hearing starting at 6 p.m. Wednesday, March 30, at ACHD headquarters, 3775 Adams St., in Garden City.
The St. Luke’s master plan, which was adopted by the City of Boise in 2015, requires the development agreement and the vacation of a section of Jefferson Street to allow the project to move ahead. In coming weeks, St. Luke’s is expected to formally ask for the Jefferson Street vacation, a request that will be heard by the ACHD Commission in the next few months.
In keeping with our ongoing community engagement around this project, St. Luke’s is planning to host a neighborhood meeting at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 6, at the Boise Senior Center, 690 Robbins Road.
The multi-phase campus development plan will enable St. Luke’s to expand and upgrade aging facilities with an emphasis on patient safety and evidence-based design while incorporating needed public infrastructure improvements.
