Background Documents

Bicycle & Pedestrian Plan (2008)

The Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan was devised to encourage non-motorized transportation by developing facilities and improving overall conditions for bicyclists and pedestrians. This Plan will provide the framework necessary for developing the physical facilities such as bikeways and pedestrian walks, as well as education and encouragement programs which will increase social awareness of non-motorized travel and provide the essential elements for success. Bicycle and pedestrian facilities and programs will give the communities of Ammon, Idaho Falls, lona, Ucon, and Bonneville County opportunities to use non-motorized forms of travel in a safe and accessible manner.

comprehensive plan (2000)

This document proposes a direction, an organization to guide the future growth of our City. The growth and development of a city are the result of many independently made
decisions. This document can be a guide to coordinating such decisions — to facilitating and inspiring some of those decisions. With a sense of direction, our future does not have to be left to chance. We can instead make a conscious attempt to assure ourselves and our children a future the citizens of our community have said they want to see.

Downtown Design Guidelines (2007)

The central purpose of the Idaho Falls Downtown Design Guidelines is to maintain and enhance the community’s unique architecture while accommodating new development initiatives. Commercial districts that have a unique sense of place that cannot be replicated elsewhere have a significant competitive advantage over other, more ordinary commercial strips. Preserving and rehabilitating historic commercial buildings can create an exciting, growing and aesthetically pleasing commercial district that will attract shoppers, visitors and those who may want to make future investments in properties and businesses in Idaho Falls.

Traffic counts (2006-2010)

The Bonneville Metropolitan Planning Organization (BMPO) coHects traffic count data within the Bonneville Metropolitan Planning Area (BMPA) and receives traffic count data from other sources for the purpose of calibrating the regional transportation model. Traffic counts collected during the past five years have been compiled and are presented in this document. The traffic counts reflect an average daily traffic (ADT), i.e. the amount of traffic identified on a roadway under normal operating conditions for a twenty-four hour time period.
