About the Barber Valley
Neighborhood Association (BVNA)

Our community's residents experience an active, urban lifestyle, unique outdoor recreation opportunities, and proximity to and appreciation for wildlife and Boise's finest natural resources and structured , active, and effective conservation programs. We hope you enjoy living here! 

BVNA is a well-organized and very active neighborhood association chartered by the City of Boise. The BVNA is recognized by Ada County and other local government agencies as the entity to represent Barber Valley's neighborhood interests to local government entities as well as land and commercial development companies seeking to locate into this special valley. The BVNA is not a homeowners association (HOA). It does not administer CCRs, maintain internal neighborhood common areas, and does not collect fees for landscaping and other amenities. The BVNA does, however, work collaboratively with the dozens of established HOAs located in the Barber Valley.   

Our Goal

The BVNA goal is to help neighbors stay connected and learn about the latest activity that affect you as a member of our great community. We advocate for smart and efficient development of our growing neighborhood and seek to preserve a unique lifestyle in a relaxed urban setting sandwiched between two huge wildlife conservations areas. We hold regular monthly meetings at rotating locations, and communicate meeting minutes to everyone. To sign up for our email list, send us your contact information from the drop down subject line here. We seek a balanced representation from all Barber Valley neighborhoods, old and new, on our Board of Directors. We charter committees to tackle emerging neighborhood issues and currently have active committees dealing with transportation issues, wildfire mitigation and emergency evacuation planning, and open space and park development. Your energy and talents are certainly welcome wherever you’d like to lend a hand! The BVNA boundaries are shown in yellow on this map. Our association is nestled between the foothills and the river, bordered by Warm Springs Mesa and Highway 21. We are a ‘bridge to bridge’ neighborhood with entrances at the Parkcenter Blvd bridge, Eckert Rd (Barber bridge), and E. Warm Springs Avenue at the south end of the valley at the Highway 21 bridge. The demographics of our neighborhood, as well as the other Boise Neighborhoods, are outlined in this document.


Living with Wildlife

Barber Valley Neighborhood Association


The foothills meet the river in the Barber Valley, and this is a special place for conservation. We are fortunate to live between two significant wildlife reserves. The foothills above us are part of the Idaho Department of Fish and Game (IDFG) Boise Front Wildlife Management Area. During winter, deer and elk migrate all the way from the Sawtooth Mountains to enjoy our temperate climate by the river. The SP-01 and SP-02 plans clustered development in certain areas, and left other areas as open space to allow room for wildlife. Corridors are provided through our subdivisions for wildlife passage from the foothills to the river. When you are on designated trails in the foothills, please follow IDFG  management guidelines, keep your dog on a leash, and respect closures. To learn more, check out this map, and learn about the wildlife and human uses here. We’re also home to the Barber Pools Conservation Area, a wildlife reserve managed by the Idaho Foundation for Parks and Lands. Neighbors are asked to leave this space undisturbed for wildlife; learn more about the reserve here.
