Land Sale In GTNP In Question

for sale

Governor Matt Mead says he is concerned about the future of the agreed sale of four parcels of land in Grand Teton National Park to the federal government.  The second of the four parcels was closed in January, but sequestration and related budget concerns now appear to jeopardizethe sale of the remaining two.  Mead told reporters Friday, “We’ve been having ongoing conversations and even trips to Washington D.C…on  that very issue on how do we go forward because we want those sales to go through.  But I’m not willing to not have the state paid what it’s due.”  Mead says the state will have to see whether they can make the next payment – and if not, the state will have to determine what to do next. Mead says the state wants to find a solution for completing the sale of that land and keeping it part of National Park Service protected land. The purchase of the third parcel is to be closed by January 2014.  That involves 640 acres at Antelope Flats.
