The College of Western Idaho is one step closer to building a permanent campus on the Boise river.

The community college bought the property on Main Street in 2015, which caused some controversy. Then the school failed to get enough votes on a bond in 2016, which further slowed the process to get its own campus.

CWI leases space in different parts of Ada County to hold classes for its students and is eager to build a permanent home on the 10-acre property along the river.
