We want to hear from you! Idaho Falls residents, business owners and community organization members are invited to join the City of Idaho Falls for a revitalization presentation on Thursday, Nov. 9 from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Idaho Falls Public Library.
The presentation will focus on transforming underutilized properties, known as brownfields, from liabilities into assets to revitalize our community and bring our neighborhoods back to life.
Discussion topics include:
-What is a brownfield and where are they in Idaho Falls?
-The City’s efforts to obtain a $600K grant to address brownfields from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
-The impact brownfield sites have on the livelihood, health and welfare of our community.
-Plans to transform blighted areas into healthy, viable spaces that enhance our neighborhoods and provide new employment opportunities.
-How your involvement is key to the success of this program.
If awarded the grant, the City will use the funds to establish an Idaho Falls brownfield revitalization program.
For those who would like to offer support for these efforts or have questions, contact Economic Development Coordinator, Dana Briggs at (208) 612-8777 or [email protected].
