Idaho Falls is a great place to live, to do business, and to recreate. There are so many things that make IF special. IF is growing and with that growth comes many opportunities, as well as the concern that those things we love about our town may change. Idaho Falls is already evolving. In an effort to bring the community together for a meaningful conversation about growth and how to manage the change it brings, Idaho Falls is launching Imagine IF…a Plan to Move Idaho Falls Forward Together.
This effort is an opportunity to help shape how our city grows and changes today and into the future, keeping Idaho Falls a great place to live. Ultimately, the conversations will form the basis for the city’s new plan for its future. The information on this page explains how to participate, the project timeline, and resources to understand some of the challenges and opportunities the community is already facing. We hope you will participate with us as we work towards what we IMAGINE…

Imagine IF City Wide Survey - The City of Idaho Falls is growing. Residents have a stake in the character of our city and how it evolves. Please let us listen to you!
This survey should take no more than 10 minutes to complete. Your responses will be carefully reviewed and considered as the City of Idaho Falls strives to navigate change in a way that balances our history with our future.
You can also request a paper copy to be mailed by calling (208) 612-8799, or one can be picked up at the Idaho Falls Community Development Services Department inside the Idaho Falls City Hall Annex.
Community Development Services are holding 5 neighborhood meetings to discuss growth and change in Idaho Falls and its neighborhoods. These meetings are designed so staff can learn about concerns and preferences specific to the neighborhoods where people live, rather than just at a City-wide level. The meetings will be an opportunity for staff to learn about what is great about the City’s neighborhoods as well as what can be done to improve them. The meetings will also cover important topics such as health, housing, and connectivity.
The meetings are designed with COVID-19 in mind and will be available online via Webex and Facebook Live. For those wishing to attend in person, they may come to the City Council Chambers at 680 Park Avenue. Those interested in attending via Webex can click the link below to join the meeting or email firstname.lastname@example.org to receive a calendar invite before the meeting.
CDS has partnered with Poll Everywhere for these meetings, which will allow citizens to participate directly in the meeting regardless of which platform or location they choose. The Poll Everywhere can be accessed through a mobile web browser or the App can be downloaded before the meeting. Staff members will be assigned to monitor comments and chats in all platforms so everyone’s comments will be taken into account. If you cannot attend the meeting live, recordings will be available through Facebook and www.imagineif.city and poll questions will still be available for one week following the live meeting.
