Don Day points out on Twitter the irony of Boise officials offering a prize to youngsters under 12 for their creative ideas of what to do with City Hall Plaza.
The prize for the winning idea is a free pass to Roaring Springs Water Park… in MERIDIAN!
This type of logic is infectious with Boise leaders. Each April they meet with the Chamber of Commerce folks to figure out how to attract visitors and companies to Boise and the Treasure Valley…the gatherings are held in SUN VALLEY or McCALL!
The possibilities are endless. Proposals for art at the new Boise transit center can be rewarded with dinner/movie tickets to the Village Cinema at Meridian with second prize a tour of the Eagle greenbelt.
Everything is a matter of perspective. The Boise airport is fond of announcing — and promoting — new flights to places like Southern California, Houston, or Chicago. Imagine the headlines, TV coverage, and hype in those metropolitan markets: “You can now reach Boise, Idaho DIRECT!”
