Perhaps we're a little biased, considering the location of our office, but we certainly have a soft spot for the well-being of Historic Downtown Idaho Falls. Much of the magazine's content connects to it in some way or another. In fact, as we move forward, readers can expect a steady uptick of downtown-related content, ranging from historic-building profiles to “new-urbanism” residential trends, business profiles and an evolving roadmap of future infrastructure projects.

Speaking of growth and infrastructure, there's an open house today from 4-8 p.m. at the city library you won't want to miss. In partnership with Idaho Smart Growth and the Greater Idaho Falls Association of Realtors, the city is seeking public input on a visioning effort for the revitalization of south downtown Idaho Falls.

According to a recent release from the city:

The study area is south of Broadway, east of the Snake River, west of Yellowstone Highway and north of Pancheri Drive. Today, the area includes a variety of uses - Idaho Falls’ oldest historic neighborhood, a number of major civic institutions including the Idaho Falls Library, Art Museum and Idaho Falls Power. The area also includes a number of large- and small-scale, established businesses, including retail and restaurants. There are two parks and the River Walk along the Snake River at its western boundary. High traffic and commercial area border this area along Yellowstone Avenue and Pancheri Drive.

The public can also express their opinions on the project area through an online survey.
