Hold on tight, we’re recapping the Meridian State of the City Address.
Meridian has been receiving many national recognitions from safest city, to best city to live and work in. We may be biased but CBH couldn’t agree more and are so proud to be apart of the Meridian community. Mayor Tammy rocked the stage at the State of the City on Wednesday afternoon and brought lots of laughter from the croud with this:
What is CBH Homes most excited to hear and talk about? We’re so excited about all of the growth happening in Meridian, here were our BIG 3 Takeaways:
Good growth fuels a city. With a fastly growing population, it’s imperative that the City continues to plan for growth. From utilities to parks, their goal is to enhance the vision for the city and properly plan. The residents of Meridian ranked roads and education as their highest priorities for the city. What can you expect to see in 2018? Mayor Tammy will continue to bring awareness and push for the upcoming West Ada School District bond and levy that will address over-crowding and class sizes. Following that, if all goes well, commuters can look forward to improvements and widening of Chinden from Locust Grove to McDermott.
