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.

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 growth and success of Boise and our neighboring communities over the last several years have been truly extraordinary, but they also have presented us with challenges. In the coming months the City will host a series of facilitated workshops to discuss how these changes are impacting your daily lives and how you want your city government to protect Boise’s vibrancy and livability.
A modern, innovative new Main Library, co-located with the city's Department of Arts & History to create a vibrant community gathering space and iconic gateway to the City of Boise. It will serve as a point of connection for education, culture and innovation — a source of pride for generations to come.
