Driving down Vista as you come in from the airport gives you one of those feelings. It's home. It's pride in our city and it's about to get even better. 

$50,000 has been granted to the public art project along Boise's Vista Avenue. This is all part of an initiative called "Energize Our Neighborhoods" where community partners, local businesses, residents and public agencies get together to enhance neighborhoods.

If you're an artist, get your ideas ready because the City of Boise will be looking for you shortly. The project is planned for completion by mid 2018 but the search for local artists will begin soon. HERE is more information. We will keep you posted.

Do you think we need more of a splash when it comes to welcoming people to Boise?
