The South of the River Subarea Plan presents a unique opportunity to support desired development patterns featuring a riverfront mixed-use activity center, surrounded by varied residential densities and connected by thoughtfully designed roads, trails, and paths. This detailed process includes a subarea plan and a detailed conceptual plan for a mixed-use activity center, vetted through stakeholder, and public engagement, traffic modelling, and floodplain analysis to ensure feasible and development that matches the intent and purpose of the subarea. The final plan will include a detailed subarea plan with illustrative sketches, visual simulations, and a strategic implementation guide. In addition, the Logan Simpson team will develop code overlay and text modification recommendations to ensure realization of the vision from the subarea plan.
The subarea plan will provide a higher level of detail than the Comprehensive Plan could, with specific detail for development at Star Road and along the Boise River in order to plan this area as the new downtown for Star.
