Economics faculty Guido Giuntini, Don Holley and Anne Walker, and graduate student Steve Hall recently completed an economic impact study for the city of Mountain Home’s Economic Development Office in collaboration with the Idaho Policy Institute. Mountain Home is looking to revitalize its downtown by beautifying and rendering the two main downtown streets more walking and bicycling friendly. The study looked at potential employment and economic effects of the proposed changes.
The study was very well received. Courtney Lewis from the Mountain Home Economic Development Office commented, “You helped us find data that we were struggling to identify. This had been a challenging project and having you and your team on board has been such a great resource and support.”
