If you’re visiting your loved ones this holiday season, the Portneuf River Vision Study is asking you to take a quick trip down memory lane.
The City of Pocatello is asking people to go through the visual history of their family and friends and look for photos of the Portneuf River. Specifically, photos that show people interacting with the water. Stories (without photos) of living by the Portneuf, fishing, swimming, flood fighting, skating and other river-related activities are also desired.
“We’ve got a lot of photos of the river but many of them lack people,” said Hannah Sanger, Science and Environment Division Manager. “We want pictures that show people playing, fishing, swimming, or just sitting in the Portneuf and if you have stories to go along with them, all the better. We are especially interested in photos and stories from before the concrete channel was completed in 1969.”
At the December 1 Pocatello City Council Meeting, a public hearing was held where residents were allowed to voice their thought on the Vision Study in front of the council. At the meeting scheduled for December 15, 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. Public comment will not be taken at the December 15 meeting.
