Draft of Portneuf River Vision Study Complete; Public Input Sought, Open House Planned

Portneuf River Vision Study Pocatello

A look into the future of the Portneuf River in Pocatello is entering its final stages. With the end in sight, local leaders are asking for the public’s input one more time. Recently, the finishing touches were put on a draft of the Portneuf River Vision Study’s executive summary and online story-maps. The Draft Vision Study is a result of collaboration between the City of Pocatello and the U.S. Army Corps. of Engineers and outlines 30 short and long-term projects that could revitalize the river’s environmental, recreational, and economic opportunities. “I’d like to thank the residents of Pocatello who let their opinion about the Portneuf be known,” said Hannah Sanger, Science and Environment Division Manager for the City of Pocatello. “Whether you weighed in at one of the open houses or filled out our online surveys, your thoughts are what helped shape the Vision Study and the document is one that was truly created by the citizens of Pocatello.” The Vision Study Working Group asks the public to recommend final changes to the Draft Vision Study by Friday, October 21. Community members are encouraged to start with the 28-page photo-intensive Executive Summary, which summarizes the Vision Study’s goals, recommendations, and proposed projects to achieve these recommendations, pending necessary permitting, land acquisition, and funding. Residents can view the draft at and submit their comments online. Written comments will also be accepted at Pocatello City Hall, 911 North 7th Avenue or residents can comment in person at the final Open House that will be held October 12 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Pocatello Community Charter School, 995 South Arthur Avenue. The Portneuf River Vision Study is scheduled to be presented to the City Council at the study session to be held October 13 at 9 a.m. 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; 208.234.6248 or 5815 South 5th Avenue, Pocatello, ID.
