Community Response to Coronavirus and its Social/Economic Impact: 

Please Sign this Petition for the Boise Native Plant Preserve

Hi Neighbors,

Please Sign Our Petition (in Google Sheet)

We are requesting that the City of Boise acquire the undeveloped N 6th St. Right of Way (ROW) from Brumback/Boise Hills Dr. to Alturas (long strip indicated on photo).

This ROW was ceded by the City of Boise in 1971 to Ada County Highway District (ACHD). The requested ROW is adjacent to the North End Native Plant Preserve (blue square indicated on the photo) which is owned by the City of Boise.

Acquisition of this ROW through ACHD’s amicable vacation process would allow the City of Boise to provide permanent, public pedestrian access along this corridor. It would preserve the site of the bench (currently marked by prayer flags) for permanent public use and would significantly increase the size of the North End Native Plant Preserve.

We urge you to show your support of this effort by signing our Petition (in a Google Sheet)

Thanks! Anne and Alan Hausrath

P.S.:  Feel free to include children under 18 as “kid 1”, “kid 2”, etc.


We the undersigned support the efforts of the City of Boise to acquire the undeveloped 6th st Right of Way between Alturas and Brumback/Boise Hills Drive for the purpose of securing pedestrian access to the North End Native Plant  Preserve.  The Reserve was donated by Alan and Anne Hausrath in 2015 and is owned and maintained by the City of Boise as a demonstration native plant garden.  Vacation of this Right of Way by ACHD will allow Boise City to work in partnership with the community to allow for improved access to the reserve. It also will assure permanent, public preservation of and access to this strip of land for current and future generations.
