Charles F. McDevitt Youth Sports Complex Master Plan Presentation April 18!

Hello Centennial neighbors!

In case you may have missed it, we received an update from Boise Parks and Recreation on the Master Plan for our neighborhood’s Charles F. McDevitt Park completion and reviewed it at our announced April 11th open board meeting last night at Tree City Church. Thank you all who attended and shared their thoughts. The board is investigating a few proposed changes to the current plan and will present those at next week’s P&R Commission meeting. All are encouraged to attend. Zoom meeting options are available – see below.

Here is the latest update from Boise Parks and Recreation. We encourage everyone to attend.

March 2024 Update from Boise Parks and Recreation

Thank you to those who have participated in the outreach process so far; our team values your feedback and is now preparing a final design proposal following a second survey.

Incorporating initial feedback on potential amenities, our team of landscape architects prepared two design concepts for people to vote on. Option 2, which is more focused on wheeled sports with a bike pump track area and new skatepark features, was the winner with more than 63% of the vote. If you would like to view these follow-up survey results, you may do so here.


Next Steps

Following this second round of public input, the city’s landscape architects are working to finalize a master plan design. This design update will be presented to the Boise Parks and Recreation Commission, where a public hearing will follow a presentation from staff. The Board of Commissioners will then vote on the updated master plan. Details for the April meeting are listed below.

If the updated master plan design is approved, the impact fee funding to build out the new amenities is expected to be available in fiscal year 2025. 

If you have feedback for the folks who will ultimately make the decision on the future of the park, please attend the meeting they reference on 4/18/2024!
