After getting feedback on the future of the Portneuf River at the Portneuf Valley Farmer’s Market, the results are ready to be presented to the public.
On Monday from 4 to 6 p.m. at Pocatello City Hall, students from Utah State University’s Department of Landscape Architecture will present more than a dozen concepts for river restoration and rehabilitation. These concepts were developed with assistance from city officials, local organizations and Idaho State University faculty.
“These ideas are separate from the ones developed during the Portneuf River Vision Study,” said Hannah Sanger, science and environment division manager for the city of Pocatello. “The Utah State University students have created additional site specific drawings depicting what it could look like to connect Idaho State University to the river along Terry Street, to improve access to the river within the concrete channel and levees, and to revitalize use of the river upstream and downstream of the city to name a few.”
The USU students will be taking public feedback on the new concepts. The comments will be incorporated into a final report that should be completed by the end of December.
