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


The City of Eagle and the 616 Lions Club hosted a unique community Easter egg hunt, the Trail EggXtravaganza, throughout Reid Merrill Park on March 17. The event allowed children and families to casually stroll along the trails at the park at their own pace, collecting eggs to earn prizes. In addition, there were free activities such a coloring, face painting, bean bag toss, and more.


The Museum of Idaho in Idaho Falls received a gift of $905,000 from the Carr Foundation to support the museum’s forthcoming expansion and enhance the existing facility. The Carr Foundation has also issued a challenge to the community to contribute to the remodel of the existing space and the forthcoming permanent exhibit, “The Way Out West.”


Thanks to a $50,000 grant from PetSmart Charities® and donations by The Whittier Trust and the Myers family, a surgery suite will be created at the Pocatello Animal Shelter. The suite will feature two surgery tables, an exam table, a dental table and a fully equipped preparation and recovery room. Installation of equipment on the surgery suite is scheduled to begin in April.


The Pocatello Historic Preservation Commission recently hosted an informal meeting for residents to give their input to help the commission create a Historic Preservation Plan, to identify community historic preservation goals, and establish a common vision. Residents unable to attend the meeting were invited to submit written comments to the City.
