BTNF Office

The Bridger-Teton National Forest has announced this weekend that it has accepted an offer of $11.5 million dollars for the sale of a portion of the administrative site in downtown Jackson, Wyoming. The 10-acres of the Bridger-Teton’s 15-acre parcel were listed by Sotheby’s International Realty on May 30th. An offer by an as yet unnamed buyer was made last week, waiting only to be accepted by the regional office of the Forest Service. The site is located off of North Cache drive and has been used by the Bridger-Teton as the site for the Supervisor’s Office, Jackson Ranger District Office, employee housing and storage since the mid-1970’s. Proceeds from the sale will be used to reconstruct facilities identified in the 2012 Decision Notice including the remodel of the Forest Supervisor’s Office, warehouse, and the conversion of the Jackson District Office into housing for temporary employees on the remaining 5-acres. Additional facilities will be constructed at the Cottonwood Administrative site. The proposed closing date for the parcel is November 1st. Meanwhile, the Bridger-Teton is spending the next 6-weeks completing work the Cottonwood administrative site at the end of Fall Creek road and south Highway 89 to relocate employee housing and warehouse facilities.  The Forest Supervisor’s office will remain in Jackson.
