Twin Falls Shares Urban Renewal Strategies


By Jay Michaels

Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) The City of Twin Falls is showing other Idaho towns “how it's done.”

They're comparing urban renewal notes with the City of Meridian to see what works and what doesn't. The mayor of Twin Falls explains that sharing their knowledge with other cities helps improve both sides of the equation.

Twin Falls Mayor Greg Lanting says, "We're going to talk about how we utilize our Urban Renewal a little bit differently than they do. We'll ask them some questions, and see what they do that we could be doing better. We don't have all the answers and we know that."

Lanting points out they've had similar meetings with the cities of Nampa and Caldwell recently. He's glad Twin Falls can be a successful example other communities can follow.
