Fire Dept.

ISSUE: He would like to speak to someone about tailgating in the park area and about alcohol use during the tailgating time. He thinks there should be some discretion used by the police when touring the park during the games.
Action Taken: Contacted

Karen Ellis-Vant
N. Wagonwheel Rd.
Boise, ID 83702
ISSUE: Last Sunday some of the roads in the area where she lives were blocked off because of some type of marathon. These blockages make it difficult getting in and out of their subdivision and residents have to go way out of their way to get anywhere. Planners of these marathons should consider the residents in the area when they block roads.

Concerned Citizen
ISSUE: He is concerned about Jack’s Urban Market Place. He thinks there needs to be a little flexibility to make this happen. He has closely watched the designs that have come out and doesn’t think the committee and JUMP are so far apart that the city would let $100 million gift go away.

The building demolition happening at the location of the Hillcrest Library branch (Overland & Orchard) has completely torn up the west end of the strip mall and there doesn’t seem to be any progress being made to finish the construction. The signs for the Library are gone, the Library entrance area is torn up and patrons have to walk through a safety tunnel to access the Library. It needs a large banner hung up so people know the Library is still open.
