Boise City Council to reconsider Aeries Terraces site visit

The Boise City Council will hold a special meeting noon Wednesday, December 4. The special meeting will address the council’s November 19 decision to visit the site for Aeries Terraces, a proposed 21-acre, 30-lot hillside development in the central Boise Foothills.

During the November 19 meeting, council heard an appeal of the Planning and Zoning Commission’s September 16 denial of the project and an application for preliminary plat for the project. As part of its discussion, the council voted to extend the public hearing to its regular meeting on December 10 in order to give councilmembers an opportunity to visit project site. That site visit is currently scheduled for 3:30 p.m. on December 10, before the council’s next regular 6 p.m. meeting.

Since then, however, Councilmember Scot Ludwig, who made the motions to extend the public hearing and hold a site visit, has asked that the council reconsider his motion for a site visit.

Wednesday’s special meeting will take up that request in order to have the matter resolved before December 10’s scheduled meeting.
