Town/County Plan Awarded for Excellence

November 6, 2013 Jackson Hole, State of Wyoming, Teton County, Town of Jackson No Comments

The Western Planning Resources Rural Innovation award, in which the Western Planners Association recognized the Jackson/Teton County Comprehensive Plan, was presented by the joint town and county planning commissions Monday to the electeds of the two government bodies during their Joint Information Meeting.  Teton County Planner Jeff Daugherty says the plan had been selected for the award during the WPA’s October meeting.  Daugherty says the importance of this award and the other award as well as a nomination for the Daniel Burnham Award (which is the most prestigious award in planning) has the benefit of showing a comprehensive plan that serves as a foundation for sound land development regulations.  Says Daugherty:   “It’s nice to have professionals in other communities – disinterested third parties – recognize this plan as being the excellent document that it is.” Daugherty says the association recognized the complex mix of federal, state, town, county and private land ownership; and that only three percent of the county’s land area is privately owned.  He says they were also impressed with the cooperation between the town and county on the effort which he says is not very common. The Western Planners Association is comprised of planners from Alaska, Washington, Utah, Idaho, Montana, New Mexico, California, Nevada, Wyoming and Canada.

  • Don’t let snakes ruin your Labor Day - September 1, 2014
    In my opinion, everybody should go hunting each weekend of the hunting season. You don’t have to go after elk or deer every time. Change it up a little. Hunt doves on the first weekend, then try to get a blue grouse or two the next. Later in the fall, you can start working duck […]
