Portneuf Valley Pride is an organization dedicated to increasing the growth, opportunity, harmony, beauty, and overall environment of our local area. It is a collection of service, business, educational, and governmental organizations who, together with individuals, make great things happen in the Portneuf Valley.
Our coalition seeks to embrace as its core value:
“The Importance of One and the Power of Many”
We provide a mechanism where projects beyond the capabilities of a single service group can be planned, staffed, and executed.
“There has been a change in attitude among residents and businesses in Pocatello. I can’t tell you how important this is when we go out and sell the community…a positive outlook can make a tremendous difference.”
Mayor Roger Chase,
State of the City address, January 2005
Our objective is to make this town even better than it is. It’s that simple! We provide a mechanism where projects beyond the capabilities of a single service group can be planned, staffed, and executed. We assist the community in developing and enhancing the capabilities of service organizations.
Portneuf Valley Pride supports, assists and initiates. Our goal is not to replace or duplicate the efforts of other groups.
Four Key Ways Portneuf Valley Pride Promotes Changes in Attitudes Towards the Appearance of Our Community:
- PERFORM: We are involved with projects because “Doing Feels Good” and it makes a difference!
- FACILITATE: We facilitate linkages between areas of need and groups that have the resources to help.
- SUPPORT: We support efforts that fit into our Vision Statement and help “spread the word”.
- VISION: New creative ideas are developed, opinions expressed and we challenge ourselves and others to make things around us better.
Our organization has been involved in several community projects.
