Welcome to Star, Idaho. We are a small town located about 20 miles west of Boise. Our community offers a pleasant atmosphere and we are close to many of the recreational opportunities that Idaho has to offer. Star offers a lifestyle that is still within reach, has four seasons climate and a very low crime rate. Because of this, many have found Star to be the community of choice to raise their children. It isn't uncommon in Star to see local children walking down to the river with their fishing poles in hand.
Like much of the Treasure Valley, Star has grown over the last few years. The current population is about 6500 and this recent growth has provided the residents with an increase in services. More businesses have opened, allowing residents the opportunity to shop locally for goods and services.
Our Home Town Celebration will be held on Friday, July 4th this year. Among the things to watch for will be the Fireworks Show, Pie Contest, games for the kids and the parade. The BBQ will begin at 12:30 pm at Blakehaven Park; make sure to purchase your tickets early. The day's events will start at 8:00 am and run through the evening. We have many events planned for our residents this summer, so mark your calendars and come join us.
Star is a town where residents know and care about their neighbors and I am proud to be the Mayor of this great community.
