Bannock Transportation Planning Organization Launches Interactive Website to Collect Feedback on Yellowstone Avenue
Bannock Transportation Planning Organization (BTPO) is in the process of updating the Yellowstone Corridor Plan and has launched a new website, www.yellowstoneupdate.com, to make it easy and convenient for the public to provide feedback on this important corridor.
“BTPO recognizes that Yellowstone is the heaviest traveled corridor in Pocatello and Chubbuck. Getting people around safely and efficiently is important and we want to plan for that,” said Mori Byington, Director of BTPO. “We also know that people are busy and sometimes it isn’t the easiest option to attend a one-time event to give input, so we are encouraging people to use www.yellowstoneupdate.com to provide feedback at their convenience.”
Anybody can use this website to identify areas where they are concerned about congestion, safety, bicycle travel, pedestrian travel, transit access, safety or other concerns they may have with the transportation system along Yellowstone Avenue. By placing feedback directly onto the web-based map, the public can play a vital role in helping BTPO identify issues and shape future improvements for the corridor in Pocatello and Chubbuck.
In addition to giving input through www.yellowstoneupdate.com, the public is encouraged to attend a public open house on Tuesday, May 3, to provide feedback. The open house will be at the Pocatello City Council Chambers, 911 North 7th Avenue, from 4:30-7:30 p.m. The open house format will allow individuals to view information and visit with project staff anytime between those hours.
Public comment is being accepted until May 20. For more information on this effort, please contact Andrea Gumm at email@example.com or by phone at (208) 870-8751.
