I plan to investigate it first hand, but I was hoping Treasure Valley residents could offer opinions and obervations about SE Boise and SW Meridian. I am trying to get a feel as to what family living in those two areas might be like. (if willing, could you list the general area where you live)

SE Boise is bordering the desert and the entrance way into Lucky Peak Resevoir area. The main areas are Columbia Village and Harris Ranch. Columbia Village is middle to upper middle class, Harris Ranch is a little more ritzi.

I don't know too much about SW Meridian. Lots of Suburbs in Meridian, lots of threads about it here too. The further west you go in Meridian the more rural it gets. It gets into the dairies that are left.

Suburbanite Democrats live in SE Boise, suburbanite Republican live in Meridian, I know that politics are going to inevitable as someone will bring them up, so I will first and keep it simple.

To answer the last bit I live in the Broadway/Park Center area, near BSU.

Forgot schools, SE Boise will filter into Timberline, and I don't know about Meridian, I think Meridian High and Mountain View for the SW part. Mostly Meridian High though I think.

When I was looking at houses a few years ago my agent steered me away from SE Boise. Said that the neighborhoods are great but if anything happens to Micron your house value may go down dramatically. So right now everyone that I know that lives out in that direction loves it, but they are always nervously keeping an eye out to see what Micron is doing.
