Welcome to the City of Pocatello 's website! Whether you're a resident, a visitor or just interested in our community, you will find a wealth of information about our city and local government in these web pages.
With a population of over 50,000, Pocatello is the 5th largest city in Idaho, yet we have a friendly, small town attitude. We take pride in our community and encourage both civic and government participation from all citizens. Our history is very rich and varied and has earned us designations as the “Gateway to the Northwest” and the “U. S. Smile Capital.”
Pocatello also offers a variety of recreational opportunities through our Parks and Recreation Department and Idaho State University, as well as quick access to regional recreation. We also have a pro-active economic development team that will do everything they can to assist you. In other words, Pocatello is the perfect place for you, your family and your business.
Please make use of our website to learn more about what we have to offer. You can also read more about Pocatello in our most recent City Newsletter. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me via email, or by calling 208-234-6163 or stop by City Hall.
