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.
