Check out noteworthy things done and honors received by cities around Idaho as they work to create quality cities.

 

The annual Caldwell Youth Forum was held on September 13. The event was well attended.

 

One of the largest public-private partnerships in Idaho is moving forward after the recent groundbreaking on the Northgate Project in East Idaho. The project represents an unprecedented partnership between six public and private entities that will increase mobility and economic opportunity along the Interstate 15 corridor. The partnership consists of the City of Chubbuck, the City of Pocatello, Bannock County, the Pocatello Development Authority, the Idaho Transportation Department and Millennial Development.

 

The City of Eagle will be hosting a public workshop on October 5 seeking input from the community on the citywide pathways and trails network as the City works on its Pathways & Trails Plan.

 

On September 18, the City of Ketchum held a groundbreaking ceremony to mark the next phase of growth at the 22-year-old Guy Coles Skate Park, built in 1995 and expanded in 2005 to include two concrete bowls. The City provided food and drink for the event. During the summer, the City Council approved hiring a contractor to design, engineer, expand and build new features at the popular urban park. The new additions will include various rails, elevated ramps and extending the existing bowls.

 

Meridian Art Week took place September 9-16 in Meridian. Festivities included performances by the Treasure Valley Children’s Theater, live music and artist demonstrations, a chalk art competition and capped off with the rescheduled Gene Kleiner Celebration Meridian Symphony Concert at Kleiner Park.

 

The 10th annual Howling at the Hamilton was held by the City of Moscow on September 16 at the Hamilton Lowe Aquatics Center. This event is a one-day opportunity for all dogs to swim, play and have fun at the pool. The dogs must be accompanied by an owner and cleaned up after. Only dogs are allowed to swim during this annual event. This year, the Humane Society of the Palouse hosted a dog-jumping competition as well.

 

The City of Moscow was awarded the prestigious Certificate for Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting by the Governmental Finance Officers Association (GFOA) for the 14th year running.

 

The Pocatello Police Department is offering the innovative defensive driving course “Alive at 25” to young drivers free of charge. The class is open to drivers 15 to 24 years of age.

 

The City of Twin Falls was awarded the prestigious Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting for its Comprehensive Audited Financial Report (CAFR).

 

In August, the Twin Falls Parks and Recreation Department participated in the Magic Valley Adult and Youth Services Amazing Race.
