I'm concerned about the design incorporating the Greenbelt. 8th St is a vital access point and transit corridor for cyclists and pedestrians going from the North End to Downtown then accessing either the Greenbelt or crossing the Boise River to go to Lusk/BSU/Bench. The current design seems to obscure this connection rather than enhance it. Certain aspects even seem to make it seem like there's a dangerous blind corner being built right there. I'm also concerned about access to the Greenbelt and train bridge during construction. Local recent history has shown us that detours for pedestrians and cyclists is often a poor afterthought during Downtown or Greenbelt construction. I hope these concerns are contemplated and addressed. Thanks!

The bicycle and pedestrian access to downtown is vital for access to parks, downtown. It provides a safe way for all of boise to access downtown.

I think the current design for the Boise public library is beautiful. However, I have a few concerns. The entrance is intimidating for persons with mobility issues and mothers with multiple small children. I am also concerned with the absence of the cabin, it has historical significance and it supports literary programs that enhance a library environment. Finally, close parking must be an integral park of the design in order for me to support just a large investment of city resources. Thank you for all the hard work in improving our wonderful community.
