Boise is creating a downtown four-park water recreation complex along a half-mile stretch of the Boise River, just a half-mile downstream from Ann Morrison Park. Bob will help you visualize the multi-use Esther Simplot and Boise River Parks. John will discuss the park planning and management issues unique to altering existing bodies of water, FEMA permitting and water irrigation agreements. The Traditional Public Project approach has many pitfalls, so John will explain the Progressive Define-Build Concept being used to manage project planning, cost controls, and efficient construction execution. Both parks start construction fall 2014.
