The Road Ahead for the Centennial NA

A good example of purpose for CTNA: Eagle Road comes to mind. One could say “A River Runs Through It”. Our neighborhoods are bisected by one of the busiest corridors in Idaho. How can we make it become all that it can be?
There are many key stakeholders in our section of Hwy 55 as it courses from The City of Eagle south beyond I-84. Among these are the cities of Boise, Meridian and Eagle, Ada County Highway District, Idaho Transportation Department, major subdivisions, countless businesses, thousands of commuters and, of course, the members and constituency of the Centennial Neighborhood Association.
CTNA gives us an opportunity to build consensus and bring a potent voice to the table. This example is figuratively representative of our many prospective purposes.
We are asking you to become a contributor to our travels on the road ahead.

What is a Neighborhood Association?

A Neighborhood Associations (NA) primary function is to work with the city towards the common goal of creating strong “vibrant” communities. This can include:

  • Creating Neighborhood Events
  • Building or Improving shared spaces
  • Learning about and informing neighbors of new plans and developments
  • Providing a voice for the future of our communities with the city
  • And so much more
    Without an NA the neighborhood would lose the ability to gain city grants and funding for events and projects as well as significant representation at city hearings.
