The City of Boise has an ambitious goal – to make the City the most livable community in the nation. Through actions like creating the greenbelt pathway, protecting the foothills open space and preserving historic buildings, Boise is well on its way to achieving that goal. Recently, there has been increasing interest in incorporating sustainability into that livability goal to ensure a lasting environment. Beth Geagan, Management Consultant with Shift Strategies has 30 years experience planing, facilitating and managing projects and has recently found herself at the center of the City’s sustainability efforts. In this interview, Beth discusses her role as the contracted project manager for City of Boise’s sustainability initiative implementation. Our conversation takes a look at the history of sustainability in Boise, the framework for the City’s current sustainability initiative, and the projects that will soon be underway to further Boise’s goal of being the most livable city in the United States. Listen to the podcast below to learn more about the City of Boise sustainability initiative.

Owyhee Place RenderingClay Carley’s latest historic renovation project is nearing it’s final stretch. Today at 3pm we’ll discuss how he and his partners are converting one of downtown Boise’s iconic buildings into a modern, mixed-use building that will bring vibrancy and activity back to this block of Main Street.

We’ll discuss his vision for the project, the obstacles that always present themselves in a major building renovation, and the sustainability features incorporated into the construction process and finished project. Perhaps we’ll even discover when we can enjoy the first cocktail on the reimagined rooftop terrace with a view down Main Street and the Linen District.

The brainchild of Action Jackson, Idaho Youth Education Recycling Partnership ( iYerp),  was started in 2007 to improve our

community and raise funds for Idaho children through recycling metal from construction projects. IYERP is a program of the John William Jackson Fund (JWJF) who works with general contractors in Idaho and beyond to collect metal scrap which is then dropped off at Pacific Steel and Recycling where the proceeds from the metal is donated to the John William Jackson Fund.

Many of us continue to be inspired by the mission of the JWJF and by the energy and passion demonstrated by it’s leader Action Jackson.

Listen to the interview live on Radio Boise on February 4, at 3.00 or you can stream it live at http://radioboise.us/. Podcast is available HERE.
