Bridge Donation

 

Please note that if you wish to make a general donation to the FACTS organization go to this link FACTS Donate.

This current page is for a donation only toward the 52nd Street Bridge Project. Additional information about the bridge project can be found on this website under the heading of recent news.

THE BRIDGE PROJECT:  The Foundation for Ada/Canyon Trails Systems, Inc. (“FACTS”), in partnership with the Garden City, is raising funds to design, construct and install a pedestrian bridge connecting Plantation Island at the west end of Garden City’s greenbelt pathway system near the Les Bois Park Track.  

THE NEED:  Currently the Garden City greenbelt pathway system ends at 52nd St. It requires a detour away from the pathway. Users are required to enter 52nd St., which is a residential neighborhood with motorized vehicles and no sidewalks or pathways.  The pedestrian and bicycle detour is ¾ mile along the side of the old Les Boise race track before connecting back with the Greenbelt pathway by the Boise River.  The Bridge Project will connect the Garden City Greenbelt pathway system with Plantation Island which is already a part of the Greenbelt pathway system on the south side of the Boise river.  Cyclists and pedestrians will remain on the greenbelt pathway for the entirety of their journey after the construction of the bridge.

HOW FACTS IS PARTICIPATING:  The FACTS Board of Director has established, by resolution, a special trust fund into which all donations to FACTS for this project, will be deposited.  The trust fund prohibits any expenditures from that fund except for the completion of the Bridge Project.  

HOW MUCH MUST BE RAISED:  The FACTS Board of Directors has committed to raise the sum of $110,000 toward this Bridge Project.  As of January 2, 2023, other agencies and sponsors have committed funds to this Bridge Project an include the following:  

Name Amount 

Garden City:  $30,000

Treasure Valley Clean Cities Coalition:  $10,000

We Now Need Your Help to raise $110,000 to provide the match to a 1.9 million dollar Federal Grant to construct the bridge.
