There are two sources of operating funds for the District. The primary source is the collection of receipts from visitors at lodging properties within the boundaries of the Auditorium District. The secondary source is from operations of Boise Centre—the convention center, which was opened by the District on January 27, 1990 and is considered the operational element for the District.
For fiscal 2010, Auditorium District receipts were approximately $3.5 million and revenues from convention/meeting activity at the Boise Centre were approximately $3.0 million.
The Greater Boise Auditorium District has absolutely no authority to levy or influence property taxes, as the population within our district exceeds 25,000.
The boundaries of the Greater Boise Auditorium District follow the original Boise Junior College lines of distinction. Roughly, they fall within the following:
- Floating Feather on the North
- Lake Hazel Road to the South
- Eagle Road to the West
- Confluence of Warm Springs Avenue and Gowen Road to the East
These lines do not follow any typical County, City or other jurisdictional boundaries.
