BOISE, Idaho — City of Boise staff will talk with residents of Idaho's capital city over the coming months to find out more about how the issue of housing affordability personally affects them.

The city's Office of Community Engagement on Thursday announced four events, beginning Thursday, October 7, on City Hall Plaza as part of First Thursday. From 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., Boiseans are invited to stop by the plaza and share ideas and recommendations with city staff on how the city should use American Rescue Plan funds to "support our hardest-hit communities."

An online survey about American Rescue Plan Funds is also live on the City of Boise website.
