The public is invited to weigh in on the future of a historic Pocatello area.

Tuesday, July 10 from 6 to 7:30 p.m., the City of Pocatello Planning and Development Services Department, Community Builders, and Team Better Block will host a Community Walk-and-Talk for the Terry First project. The Walk-and-Talk will be held at Portneuf Valley Brewing, 615 South 1st Avenue. Terry First aims to create a vision for the Terry Street/South First Avenue corridor that will spur economic development, support redevelopment, increase bicycle and pedestrian mobility, and improve the connection between Idaho State University and Old Town Pocatello.

“Anyone with any type of connection to the area is encouraged to attend and have their voice be heard,” said Matthew Lewis, Senior Planner, with the City of Pocatello. “Whether you’re a resident, business owner, or commuter in the area, we want to know the ways that you think this area can be improved.”  

The informal meeting will feature a brief explanation of the project. Attendees will then walk the corridor and provide suggestions for what they think could be done to make the streets safer and more attractive. Public input will be incorporated into a demonstration project in August. Refreshments will be provided.

Pocatellans can also visit terryfirst.com to share their thoughts and opinions. The site features a community questionnaire asking people to share their experiences with and vision for Terry Street and First Avenue. In addition, the website contains two mapping activities— “Photo Voice” and “Opportunity Points”—that will help project partners further understand citizens challenges with and vision for the corridor.
