Our vision is to make Boise, Idaho the most livable city in the country. LIV Boise is an expression of this vision. By focusing on sustainable policies, practices and partnerships, this citywide effort promotes livability across three strategic focus areas:
Lasting Environments, Innovative Enterprises and Vibrant Communities.
For a more complete picture, read our Livability Report.
Recognize, protect and improve the health and sustainability of all our activities, our connections to one another and our natural resources.
Work with individuals, nonprofits and businesses to encourage creativity and collaboration that will promote economic prosperity and improve lives.
Engage citizens and organizations to spark new connections, inspire cooperation and strengthen Boise's rich, community-minded spirit.
The Central Addition, Boise’s first LIV District captures a variety of unique features, including innovative sustainability practices and access to thriving businesses, boutique shops, housing, hotels, parks, universities and more.
Two years ago, the City of Boise, along with public and private partners, embarked on an innovative approach to address early childhood education gaps in our community and improve livability for all. The Boise Pre-K Project seeks to align public and private resources to drive measurable change at the neighborhood level.
