Have A Story About Treasure Valley Growth Or Affordability?

Idaho Matters is working on a series of interviews exploring Treasure Valley growth and affordability.

And we want to hear from you.

As the valley continues to be one of the fasting growing places in the country, we are looking for your perspective on these questions: 

  • How have Boise property taxes affected you? 

  • As Meridian has changed from a farming town to the second largest city in the state, what impact has that had on your life? 

  • Nampa and Caldwell have also seen rapid change in recent years. What has that meant for you and your family?

  • Lots of people commute from Meridian, Nampa or Caldwell to Boise every day. What’s your commute like, and how do you wish it were different? 

  • Are you a Millennial or first-time homebuyer in the Treasure Valley? What's been your experience?

  • What possible solutions to growth and affordability do you want to learn more about?


Have a story to tell on one of the above topics? We may use it in our upcoming series. Here's how to share your voice with us:

  • Download the Boise State Public Radio app on your iPhone or Android device. Open the app and click the menu bar on the top left (will look like three horizontal lines). Tap the “Talk To Us” function; it will open a new screen. Tap the red microphone icon to begin recording and again when you’re done speaking. Tap the “SEND” button; your email app will open for you to send the message. 

  • If you have an iPhone or iPad, you can instead use the “voice memo” app to record your story. Email the recording to idahomatters@boisestate.edu

  • Leave us an old fashioned voicemail! Here’s the number to call: 208-426-3625
