Open House to be Held on River Visioning Progress

Portneuf River Vision Study

Last winter residents shared their visions for the Portneuf River. Now, with over 600 surveys completed, hundreds participating in presentations, and thousands of comments, Pocatellans will be able to select their two favorite short and long-term projects for the river.

During an Open House Tuesday, May 10 from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m. in the multipurpose room at Pocatello Community Charter School, 995 South Arthur Avenue, residents can choose from a list of 43 potential projects for the Portneuf between the Gap and the Fort Hall Indian Reservation. The Open House will also showcase maps of the Portneuf, a timeline for the Visioning Study, as well as posters of the Visioning Study’s goals and recommendations. Attendees will have the opportunity to sketch up plans for potential projects at Centennial Park, Memorial Park and Raymond Park. City and Army Corps of Engineers staff will be on hand to answer questions, along with other members of the Visioning Study’s Working Group.

“So far we have learned that the public cares deeply about the Portneuf River. Our list of 40 plus projects reflects community interest in having a healthy and accessible Portneuf River,” said Hannah Sanger, Science and Environment Division Manager for the City of Pocatello. “If you would like to be part of the process of deciding what should be done first, Tuesday is a perfect time for you to stop in and lend your voice to the next phase of this effort.”

You can also share your favorite short and long-term projects online via a short survey at river.pocatello.us/comment. Comments will be taken through June.

From here, the Working Group will review all the public comments and create a list of prioritized projects, along with an assessment of project feasibility based on funding, permitting, land ownership and other constraints. After which, the public will then be invited to comment on the document. Officials plan to present the final vision document to the Pocatello City Council for adoption later this year.

Pocatello Community Charter School is accessible to persons with disabilities. Program access accommodations may be provided with three (3) days’ advance notice by contacting Dave Hunt at dhunt@pocatello.us; 208.234.6248 or 5815 South 5th Avenue, Pocatello, ID.
