Open house on Sunnyside Road access issues today

Sunnyside Road, looking east from I-15 to the Snake River.
The section of Sunnyside Road between the Snake River and I-15 is becoming the hottest commercial real estate in town.

On the north side of the road, Teton Toyota has been there since 2008 and is breaking ground on a new Volkswagen dealership any day (opening is planned for 2014). On the south side, the Smith Group is grading land for its Chevrolet and Honda dealerships, both with valuations of $2.5 million, according to the Bonneville County Planning and Zoning Office.

The Bonneville Metropolitan Planning Organization, is holding a public open house on "access issues" in this area today from 4 to 7 p.m. at Sunnyside Elementary School, 155 Cobblestone Lane. BMPO's mission is to provide transportation planning for the cities of Ammon, Idaho Falls, Iona and Ucon, as well as urbanized portions of Bonneville County. Its offices are at 1810 West Broadway, Suite 15. Its Web page is http://www.idahofallsidaho.gov/city/city-departments/bmpo.html.
