I would like the City to ensure bird-safe designs - in terms of glass being bird-safe but also the overall design. I.e., best not to have trees/other vegetation that is attractive to birds be near windows as it might act as a "trap" - luring birds into an area where the risk of window strikes is high. Also, why move the building closer to the river? Keeping it closer to River Street would maintain more of a distance between the library building and the important bird habitat while also likely preserving The Cabin (not important to me but clearly important to many others).

Programs to help the valley homeless find work, housing, and other needed resources to help get them off of the street !!

I really like the re-use of exiting buildings like Ustick and Collister. We do not need a fancy new building.

Should a library be a gateway to a city? Who is asking these questions? I have never visited a local library in any city I have visited over my lifetime. It doesn't mean I don't like libraries, it means I am more likely to visit a museum like our tiny art museum.

First of all, we are not Salt Lake City, nor should we try to be. There is a lot of wasted space and a lot of concrete in the proposed designs. I'm not sure I would travel by foot, car or bike to a building that doesn't fit in well with its surrounding environment and seems to wall itself off from what makes Boise so nice - 8th street, the river, and views of the Statehouse, Depot, and Foothills.

too flashy and does not compliment the environment or other buildings nearby.
