On July 2, 2021, the City of Kuna launched a marketplace of small retail storefronts (120 sq. ft.) that will help foster growth of small Kuna businesses who farm or create local products. After holding two community feedback sessions in July 2020, there were over 30 businesses who indicated their interest in participating in the Market Village. There has been strong community support for the Kuna Market Village to move forward, and also local media interest:

The City of Kuna hosted a 2-day event on May 6-7, 2021 to teach high school students construction skills. The City partnered with experienced contractors to help teach construction basics including framing, roofing, siding, and flooring. Over the two days, students worked directly with contractors to construct several 10x12 sheds that are now used in the Kuna Market Village, an incubator for small businesses in downtown Kuna. The training took place at the 4th Street Gym in Kuna, and all the construction materials were provided on-site for volunteers who participated.
This program was in partnership with Idaho State University and the Kuna School District and has been completed in other parts of the state, see video summary: https://youtu.be/BF1fYS9rPOg.
- Day 1: Students participated in a 2-hour training on topics related to construction: Framing, Roofing, Siding, Flooring, etc.
- Day 2: 4-6 Students were assigned to a building team with 2 construction trainers to build a shed. At the end of the event, a recruitment/networking fair was held for students looking for summer jobs/internships.
