Mediation is next step for proposed subdivision

BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) - Those for and against a proposed subdivision near the Shakespeare Festival have a few weeks to sort out their differences through mediation.

The developer's plans call for 43 homes. The closest would be just 620 feet from the stage.

"As the homes sell or even people just get tired of it, there are going to be a lot of complaints, and it's going to be a big mess," said Thomas Omstead of Boise, "and ultimately, I think they're going to have to close down that theater."

Boise City Council members have been trying to find a compromise so that both can co-exist. They could make a decision to approve or deny the development on March 18.
