About Post Falls
Post Falls is located between Coeur d’Alene and Spokane Valley, Washington, in Kootenai County, Idaho. To the east, it is a suburb of Coeur d’Alene, while to the west, it is a bedroom community for Spokane. At the time of the 2010 census, the city had a population of 27,574, up from 17,247 in the 2000 census, making it Idaho’s tenth-largest city. The expected population for 2019 was 36,250 people, according to the United States Census Bureau.
The City was named after Frederick Post, a German immigrant who built a timber mill on land purchased from Andrew Seltice, Chief of the Coeur d’Alene Tribe, along the Spokane River in 1871. A pictogram on a granite cliff in Treaty Rock Park commemorates the property purchase.
Post Falls’ coordinates are 47.712°N 116.948°W.
The city has a total area of 14.11 square miles (36.54 km2), of which 14.07 square miles (36.44 km2) is land and 0.04 square miles (0.10 km2) is water, according to the United States Census Bureau.
Post Falls lies on the Rathdrum Prairie, which runs parallel to the Washington–Idaho border. It is bordered on the east by Coeur d’Alene, on the west by Stateline and the state of Washington, and on the south by the Spokane River. Post Falls is about 100 miles (160 kilometers) south of the Canada–United States border and 20 miles (32 kilometers) east of Spokane. The city’s elevation is 2,182 feet (665 meters) above sea level.
Post Falls has grown tourism and retirement communities due to its closeness to multiple lakes, rivers, and mountains. The City is seeing an increase in the number of retail, dining, and entertainment companies. [requires citation]
The economy of Kootenai County has always been built on timber. As the manufacturing base has gotten more diverse, this is gradually changing. The local economic development agency, Jobs Plus, Inc., has attracted several small to medium-sized businesses to the county. At the moment, manufacturing jobs are mostly found in electronics, lumber, and furniture. Flexcel, Inc., a major furniture manufacturing with 350 employees that migrated to North Idaho over fifteen years ago, chose Post Falls as its new home.
This was accomplished with the assistance of Jobs Plus, Inc., as well as the creation of an Urban Renewal District to aid in the construction of infrastructure. At the end of December 2001, this district came to an end. Jobs Plus, Inc. has also recently assisted in the recruitment of Center Partners, a call center with a 300-person workforce, and Buck Knives, a manufacturing company with a 250-person workforce. Wal-Mart also opened a new store in January 2002, employing 300 people.
In 2004, work on a private surgical hospital was finished. In 2005, Sysco Foods opened a distribution center. Jobs Plus, Urban Renewal, and the City collaborated to make this idea a reality. In addition, a $500,000 community development block grant was used to help build a water tower (total cost: $1,500,000) that was needed on the west side of town for development. Cabela’s erected a stunning 130,000-square-foot (12,000 m2) retail shop in 2007. In 2009, Post Falls saw significant economic development with the opening of ALK Source Materials/Biopol, a Danish pharmaceutical company, the construction of a second Super Wal-Mart store near the new Cabelas store, which is set to open in early summer 2010, and the completion of Lowe’s Home Improvement’s purchase of land adjacent to the new Wal-Mart at the Pointe at Post Falls.
Ground Force Manufacturing, a prominent construction equipment company, erected a 20,000 square foot (1,900 m2) extension in 2009 to accommodate the high demand for their mining construction products around the world. Additional commercial real estate activity happened in 2010, including the construction of the Lowe’s Home Improvement store mentioned earlier; a new 30,000 professional office building to house Ednetics; a 30,000 LEED-certified industrial building to house a subsidiary of Berg Integrated Systems that began construction in early 2010; and a new 30,000 LEED-certified industrial building to house a subsidiary of Berg Integrated Systems began construction in early 2010.
The State of Idaho Department of Labor will build a new regional office in Post Falls to serve the northern five counties of Idaho; several restaurants are expected to open within the Pointe at Post Falls regional power center to take advantage of Cabela’s and Wal-retail Mart’s traffic, and a major mixed-use project in the city’s downtown area is expected to take off with infrastructure and the first phase including a hoagie shop.
Interstate 90, the northern United States’ principal east-west route, passes through Post Falls and runs into the Idaho panhandle. Its intersection with State Highway 41, which runs 8 miles north to Rathdrum, is two miles (3.2 km) east. Post Falls is located about 7 miles (11 kilometers) west of U.S. Route 95, the state’s main north-south roadway that runs into Canada.
Spokane International Airport, located west of Spokane, offers passenger flights. Spokane and Sandpoint both have passenger rail service from Amtrak. In the immediate vicinity, taxis and bus services are available.
