TWIN FALLS • What would you like to see Twin Falls become? Mayor Greg Lanting wants to know.
On Tuesday, Lanting and other City Council members will host the Imagine Twin Falls 2030 Community Visioning Session, as part of their Imagine Twin Falls campaign.
Through the campaign, citizens are asked to share their vision for Twin Falls in 20 years, what they would like to see change, and what they want to stay the same.
Already, the city has received great feedback, said Sophie Sestero, assistant account executive for Ritter Public Relations.
Different platforms have attracted different audiences, said Josh Palmer, public information officer for the city of Twin Falls. Younger residents are more likely to reply on social media, he said.
“A lot of them want more activity-related facilities,”Palmer said. Email replies tend to focus on infrastructure and roads.
Though the campaign focuses on the future, the city still values input from Twin Falls’ older population, Palmer said. The idea is to make the area an attractive place to live for young professionals, families and retired people in coming years, he said.
Imagine Twin Falls representatives are reaching out to all residents, from seniors to children, Sestero said. The kids give a variety of answers, from better parks and a bigger library to “spaceships and hot dogs,”she said.

While plenty of people are happy with the city, there have been some negative comments, Sestero said.
“Are you going to be a thriving modern town with fresh ideas, or a narrow-minded, run-down hickville?”Sestero read from one comment.
No matter what the ideas, they’re all welcome, Sestero said.
“The goal of the campaign in itself is to make sure that everyone is included,”she said.
