After several meetings, presentations, and nearly 400 surveys taken, the first public comment period for the Portneuf River Vision Study will be wrapping up with an open house Tuesday, February 9.
The open house is set to begin at 4 p.m. and run until 7 p.m. in the multipurpose room at Pocatello Community Charter School, 995 South Arthur Avenue. On the agenda are multiple 10 minute presentations beginning at 15 minutes past the hour, displays including maps of the river, and historical images dating back to the 1800s. City staff and officials from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will also be on hand to answer questions from the public.
“We’ve been impressed with the amount of feedback that we’ve received from residents,” said Hannah Sanger, Science and Environment Division Manager for the City of Pocatello. “If you haven’t had a chance to yet, Tuesday is a perfect time for you to stop in and lend your voice to this historic effort.”
From here, the working group will review all the public comments and craft the vision document. 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.
