The paper's helpfully posted the slide deck and handout brochure from the Commercial Real Estate Economic Forum at the Conference Center yesterday.
It's really interesting to see how the presenters at the forum frame stuff and what they comment on.
One tidbit that was especially interesting is more on the Boise project. The other parcel north of the creek apparently has substantive plans and at least one actual tenant.

|CB|Two is doing this clinic apparently|
But is this the kind of tenant and development that will draw people to want to live in the condos in the Boise shell? This doesn't exactly scream, "downtown living!"
In less detail is a 4-story office block on the east-most (bottom) part of the lot.

One noteworthy item is that there's plans for a VA clinic next to the Social Security Office. I'm sure that Veterans who use wheelchairs or who might be missing limbs or have other disabilities will just love the lack of sidewalks and transit. (For more, see the Esquire piece on the way we treat Veterans.)

|ODOT Home for Sale in Englewood|
On January 1, 1984, the Department began a program to help ODOT employees relocate when accepting a promotion or transfer to a management or executive service position.Information on the house here.
This program is a tool that is used by management at its discretion to encourage the best-qualified employees to apply for positions requiring relocation.
The program helps ODOT maintain the high professional standards expected by the public and management.
Hallie Ford's been changing up some of the regular exhibit, and there's at least one bike themed work!

The dead zones under bridges just invite mayhem and mischief in addition to ordinary levels of camping.
