I noticed a lot of heavy equipment moving earth at the planned entrance to the event center in SRL this morning. I wonder what's up?

Snake River Landing is constructing the new Events Center Drive from Snake River Pkwy to Pioneer Road.

I noticed that Ferrell's in downtown is moving eastward to Hitt. Allthough it is a small business move, this could be intersting to follow for a few reasons: 1) Downtown is surging with renovations and new developments at the moment in turn driving property values way up, 2) Ferrell's in on perhaps on one of the most prime properties in the downtown area. It's possible the property sits vacant for a long period but not likely. I'm thinking an investor bought it, very possibly with the intent of redevelopment.

Farrell's is a very old building, at least 100 years old now. It will be interesting to see what happens to the property.

Idaho Falls seems to be choosing a different path of renovation downtown than Boise chose; a lot of old downtown Boise has been completely leveled and replaced by much different construction, while here, many of our old buildings have been restored and re-purposed.

To tell the truth, I like our way better. But there may come a time when Idaho Falls ends up doing the same, I expect, though I hope not.

I totally agree!

It looks like there will be some activity near the roundabout in Taylor crossing. One of the older buildings was demolished. I've heard an architect, dentist and one other medical practice were interested in the area.

Also, read a little more about Ferrell's. An investor did buy the building. The article heavily insinuated that the structure will be restored rather than demolished.

I've been looking back a few pages as not to step on anyone's toes, I could swear I read something about this so if anyone has I apologise in advance.

I ran across the marketing site for Anderson Business Development while browsing Bizmojo yesterday, it is a huge industrial development north of Yellowstone and south of Iona Road and east of St Leon. After driving out that way yesterday it looks as if they are getting busy with getting utilities stubbed into the development and will begin with curb cuts and laying down road in the spring.

One huge chunk has already been sold but I can't find any info about who owns or will be building but I think this development will fill quickly based on location and access.

My biggest concern is traffic on the two lane roads in the area. I believe BMPO has the St Leon stretch slated for widening to US 20 but not sure how far out that is. That leaves Iona Road and the intersection with US 26 as a potential nightmare, hopefully some thought was put into that when the county approved.

Years back in another forum I had the same thought about a commuter train between Pocatello and Rexburg. I still think it's the right idea.

I think both are great ideas. For the environmentalists, it's a green idea getting several vehicles off the road, a comfort benefit for college students (clearly not all have cars) and for safety reduces the amount of cars on the road when the roads are snowy/icy.
