Well since you asked... this year has actually set a record for building permit valuation for the city and that does not include projects such as Loves Travel Stop or whatever secret project Melaleuca is working on at Exit 113.
Work is continuing on the INL complex on the north end of town, the Pancheri overpass is somewhere around a month from completion as well as the Memorial Drive project.
The Marriott is now open as well as the Celt Pub, which should help Idaho Falls out as far as downtown developments go.
School District 91 is in the process of either building or renovating 4 elementary schools...I voted yes on this levy increase BTW.
I think more than anything right now, any developer interested in Idaho Falls is waiting on what Costco will do, if anything at all. Both Ammon and Idaho Falls have made huge proposals to draw them in.
And up in the little burgh named Ucon, Cives Steel is still awaiting approval from the city council. Up to 150 new jobs to be created and hopefully the city quits dragging its heels before Cives says screw it.
A few months ago (I forget the name of the publication) named Bonneville County as #8 on where the jobs are and referenced Areva as still being a possibility.
That's all I can remember right now. Hope I gave you some new info.
