With our mix of frontier stock, energetic residents and enthusiastic youth we seek to establish an environment of growth where all residents, businesses and visitors can participate in a changing neighborhood filled with beauty and opportunity.
The Neighborhood Motto is:
“Meet me at the Park.” And what a Beautiful Park it is.
Alameda Neighborhood Assets:
- Meet me at the Park. The Alameda Park! In the center of the neighborhood is the hub of neighborhood social life. You’ll be happy there on the tree-lined walking path, playing sand volleyball, shooting hoops, chasing the kids around Scamperville, joining a medieval group in jousting, watching a game of baseball or just picnicking.
- If you prefer more organized events, join one of the neighborhood’s organized activities which include (but not limited to) the Old Alameda Days barbecue and game night held in August and a ginormous Halloween party held as close to the spooky day as possible. Bring treats and enjoy the fun!
- If you understand community infrastructure then you will be impressed with the Alameda neighborhood’s outreach to improve curb, gutter, sidewalk and traffic marking at intersections. This industrious neighborhood told the City Fathers they needed some basic services, and they told them at the right time. A tax-implemented funding district was implemented when Fred Meyer relocated. Some of the funding from the TIF was directed to the adjoining neighborhood, Alameda, to handle the resident complaint about curb-gutter-sidewalks. A few years later, in a PNHS sponsored committee, the Alameda neighborhood representative mentioned to the Chief of Police that unmarked intersections made the area unsafe and difficult to navigate. Once again, the timing worked and the Alameda area is one of the few places in Pocatello with every intersection clearly marked for traffic right-of-way.
- Roosevelt Elementary, the almost one hundred year-old school building, now serving as a private charter school, is reminiscent of the values of yesteryear. Hard work, fair play and respect have been the motto of those attending this school for many decades.
