Planning and Public Health: Partnerships in Boise

Boise State University Professor Mark Siemon attended APA’s Policy and Advocacy Conference in late September, spreading the work of Idaho Plan4Health to APA members from across the country.

The Idaho Plan4Health leadership team includes representatives from the Idaho Chapter of the American Planning Association, the Idaho Public Health Association, and the City of Boise.

The coalition’s partnerships extend far and wide, connecting with Urban Land Institute’s Vista Corridor Study, the City of Boise’s Energize Our Neighborhoods initiativeLet’s Move Boise — and now students from Boise State University have the opportunity to conduct surveys with residents of the coalition’s target community: Boise’s Vista neighborhood.
