ACHD Mesa Road Work Plan

Neighborhood Reinvestment Grant program for the Mesa Trail System
Great News for Mesa Residents:Just hours after the City of Boise released the news that $ 6,460 had been awarded to Warm Springs Mesa through it’s Neighborhood Reinvestment Grant program for the Mesa Trail System, we learned that work is beginning this weekend on an improved R2R trail, running through the Mesa Reserve. Having walked along the “marked” pathway, we can only say that this section of the Trail System will be the crown jewel !The Mesa Reserve constitutes property donated to the City by the developers, who also announced that work on extending Windsong Dr to Boulder Heights will begin shortly.

Ridge to Rivers Ranger program. 
Your MNA Board is posting this information on behalf of the trail system and we hope that some of you will be interested in helping out.  From our Neighborhood Surveys the trail system has always held a top interest for many living here on the Mesa.   Ridge to Rivers is seeking volunteers to serve as Rangers.>For joining or additional information please contact David Gordon at dgordon@cityofboise.org or 493-2531.(Click to view video)
