Public Hearing Scheduled for Nov. 17 on Portneuf River Vision Study

Portneuf River Vision Study

With the ink dry on the Portneuf River Vision document, officials are now turning their sights towards implementation. At the November 17 meeting at 6 p.m., the Pocatello City Council will hold a public hearing on the Vision. The blueprint for the future of the river identifies a potential order of projects, as well as what resources it will take to see them to fruition. Officials are now looking to get the public’s feedback on whether or not the City should adopt the Vision and move forward with implementation. “To achieve any of these projects, it’s going to take a community effort,” said Hannah Sanger, Science and Environment Division Manager. “From residents and landowners, to government agencies and other organizations, it will take input and collaboration from everyone across Pocatello and Thursday’s meeting is part of that collaborative process.” Following the public hearing, the Council will be asked to consider a non-binding resolution to adopt the Vision. Projects would be done as priority, time, funding, and other resources allow. Over the course of the vision study, officials were able to distill four overarching guiding principles that residents would like to see considered when it comes to the future of the Portneuf. They are: - Ecosystem health - Access and recreation - Community engagement - Economic development The Portneuf River Vision Study has been a collaborative effort between the City of Pocatello and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
