Welcome! This space is for working documents and other files for RampUpIdaho partners. We are a diverse group of community and economic professionals exploring the economic impact of accessible retail, commercial and housing infrastructure throughout Idaho.

For partners. If you have large files to share with the group and they are currently online, send me a link and I’ll re-post here.

What does access look like? Just for fun, here’s a lo-res video clip of the first scooter/chair use of a ramp IHFA had constructed (in partnership with the good people at Boise Parks and Recreation) between our east parking lot and Julia Davis Park. The historic gate was not wheelchair accessible, so our building manager worked closely with the BP&R reps and our contractor a few years ago to create a better option. It has made a big difference!
