BOISE -- The project team for JUMP, also known as Jack's Urban Meeting Place, is scheduled to appeal its design with the planning and zoning commission Monday.

The Simplot Family Foundation's $70 million building project is planned to be built between Myrtle Street and Front Street, and 9th Street and 11th Street.

It features a park, amphitheatre, and a building with interactive studios and community meeting places.

In the fall, the city's design review committee rejected the design, citing potential traffic problems and an aesthetic issue with the parking garage ceiling.

But those leading up the JUMP project say that design is fine, and they just needed more time to present it.

A public hearing about the project will be held at 6 p.m. Monday, but public testimony will be limited to people who have previously testified on the project.
