Portneuf Valley partners to utilize Idaho Gives funding for the urban landscaping beautification project | Community
POCATELLO – Portneuf Valley Partners is proud to once again participate in the Idaho Nationwide Gives Campaign for 2021. This online fundraiser will benefit local nonprofits in our great state. The organization will use the funds from this year’s Idaho Gives for an urban beautification project. We will work with the city and other partners to clean up, restore and revitalize the passageway along the Benton Street flyover that connects the Idaho State University area to the warehouse district. This is also part of the vision to connect to the city center. We want to add a touch of color, light and creative art to this pedestrian walkway.
Portneuf Valley Partners (formerly Valley Pride) and its subsidiaries share the goal of promoting pride in our valley and creating an inviting and aesthetically pleasing place to live, work and play. A major focus of PVP is creating a positive first impression for our visitors and residents upon entering our community.
Previous projects include landscaped berms along Garrett Way / Highway 30, the beautiful trees on Alameda Hillside just west of Pocatello Creek Exit, and the welcome sign and travertine rock flowers on Clark Street Interchange. These are just a few great projects PVP has done over the past few years and knowing that more work is needed strengthens our team.
In addition to running capital improvement projects at the city’s entrances, PVP board members are quick to roll up their sleeves for a real impact on the community. When our organization “adopted” the Clark Street Interchange, we knew that it meant upgrading the area a few times a year. Volunteer board members pick up trash and debris during the exchange and indulge in the attitude of the PVP team to “get ready”. The next month in May is the community-wide spring cleaning. Groups attending the Pocatello-Chubbuck Chamber of Commerce event invited to post pictures of their family / friends cleaning up public areas on our Portneuf Valley Partners Facebook page with the tagline #PartnerProjects. It’s fun and engaging to see our community work together and create pride in our valley.
