County OK’s Historic Plan

by Jackson Hole Radio News

The Teton County Commission has moved forward with a plan to develop and preserve an historic district. The Commission yesterday voted to accept a grant from the State of $15,000.00 for Teton County to hire Winter and Company from Boulder, Colorado to develop a clearly – defined and community supported preservation plan that identifies important historic landmarks and districts. The consultant will facilitate the public process and guide the community on deciding the appropriate preservation strategies for Jackson Hole. The contract between Teton County and Winters Company is for $46,760.00 with the difference being made up by budgeted funds currently held by the Teton County Historic Preservation Board. The grant from the State of Wyoming which originates from the National Park Service, provides a portion of the amount needed to contract with Winters Company to identify existing conditions and then assess community options. There is a step 3  which involves developing the strategy which would cost an additional $28,850.00 but will be discussed in the upcoming budgeting.
