Teton Valley Idaho has a new Comprehensive Plan after the county commissioners there unanimously adopted it Friday.  The adoption followed the final public hearing Thursday at which 22 people attended and provided some comments regarding some of the details of the plan – including how zoning will protect the property values for landowners in the future.  Not all who commented on the plan were in favor of it while others whole-heartedly endorsed it.  The planning process was kicked off May 17th, 2010.  Entitled “Teton Valley 2020,” the plan seeks to provide a vision of how the community will develop into the future and how to shape the environment of the community.  Provisions include transportation, wildlife overlays and scenic corridors, an indoor recreation center, and proposed zoning changes.  Planners say the Comprehensive Plan received over 4,000 individual comments, with a large portion of Teton County’s approximately 10,000 residents participating in the process.  Under the plan, planning commissioners and county commissioners are to hold a biennial summit to discuss evolving concerns.  The plan further concludes that it should be reviewed, revised and updated periodically in order to be responsive to future conditions.

    As hunters, it’s our responsibility to take care of the critters we hunt, as well as those we don’t. We have to obey the game laws. Police ourselves to be sure others respect the wildlife.
