BOISE – The Association of Idaho Cities (AIC) recognized the City of Chubbuck with a City Achievement Award at the June 17th banquet during the 74th AIC Annual Conference in Boise held June 16-18, 2021.
Creativity, innovation, and solutions-oriented leadership define Idaho city officials. The City Achievement Awards recognize the work of cities around Idaho that have implemented pioneering approaches to improve quality of life, address community challenges, and enhance service delivery in cost-effective ways. This year, awards were given in six categories: Community Engagement, Economic & Community Development, Parks & Recreation, Public Safety, Public Works & Transportation, and Youth & Youth Council.
The City of Chubbuck was recognized with a City Achievement Award in the Economic & Community Development Category for its Downtown Chubbuck project. The city planned for over four years for a walkable and bikeable downtown for Chubbuck residents, which is now coming to fruition with construction of the new city hall and Idaho Central Credit Union headquarters.
The Association of Idaho Cities was formed in 1947 and is a nonpartisan, nonprofit corporation organized to serve Idaho’s 199 incorporated cities. AIC influences policies and provides education, training and technical assistance to strengthen the ability of city elected officials and staff to serve their communities.
