Kuna, part of the Boise-Nampa metro area, is one of the fastest-growing communities in Idaho. The population of Kuna tripled over the ten year period from 2000 to 2010, from less than 5,000 people to more than 15,000 residents. Kuna is located about 18 miles southwest of downtown Boise, making it a popular commuter community for those working in Boise, but seeking a smaller community in which to live. The city scores as the 19th most livable cities in Idaho due to its low cost of living and various amenities available to its residents.
Homes in Kuna tend to be more affordable than many cities in the Treasure Valley. The median home price in 2015 is about $147,000. Homes range from basic starter homes in planned communities, to large estates on acreage around the outskirts of the city. Some farmland still exists, but many of the farms have given way to development of residential communities over the past 15 years. Home prices in Kuna have risen just over 5% over the past year and are expected to rise at the same pace over the next 12 months.
Kuna recently celebrated its 150 year anniversary. The city originally developed around a railroad station for the Oregon Short Line Railroad, and also served as a stop for the stagecoach line that ran between the mining camps in Silver City and Idaho City. In the early 1900s, several families settled in the Kuna valley and began farming the area. There is some dispute over the origin of the cities name -- one popular view is that the word "Kuna" is an Indian word meaning "end of the trail", but historians state that the name is a Shoshone Indian word that means "green leaf, good to smoke". Whatever the source, the name Kuna (pronounced KYOO-nuh) is one that has a place in the fascinating history of the Treasure Valley.
Kuna's city motto is "gateway city to the birds of prey", in reference to the nearby Snake River Birds of Prey National Conservation Area. The city holds a Snake River Birds of Prey Festival each year in May. Another popular event is the annual Kuna Days celebration with live music, vendors, barbecues, fireworks, and various activities. At the center of the city is Veterans Memorial Park, a great place for a picnic or family gatherings. The western Heritage Historic Byway is also nearby, with many historical landmarks. The Snake River passes by just to the south, and the Swan Falls Dam offers picnicking, boating, fishing, as well as hiking along the river to explore the many Indian petroglyphs.
