A Boise neighborhood association is a group of community members who organize, share ideas, and cooperate to improve their neighborhood.
Membership is voluntary and open to all stakeholders, including neighbors, businesses, and other organizations within a neighborhood. The voluntary and open nature of a neighborhood association differentiates them from homeowners associations (HOAs), which are associated with individual subdivisions and typically compulsory.

Recognizing the need for all of our neighbors to be included, the association applied to extend the boundaries to its current borders, shown below:
