The Town of Jackson is considering the annexation of property across from Shervin’s Independent Oil and extending south to South Park Loop Road later this month.  During its December 2nd meeting, the Jackson Town Council found that an annexation request of approximately 5 ½  acres adjacent to Highway 89 south of the Highway 22 intersection along with an approximate 29-acre parcel adjacent to the Highway 89 and the South Park Loop Road intersection met the necessary requirements of annexation set forth in Wyoming State Statute.  Mayor Mark Barron says inclusion of the area in the town would benefit preservation of the community’s integrity.  Barron explains that the area is an important view-shed for people in town.  Barron says, “If there comes a hiking trail to the north side of that slope, I think that could be a very healthy benefit for the people in town.  Hiking to the summit of that butte is a very strong, inexpensive recreational opportunity. The council then asked Town staff to prepare the necessary ordinance to proceed with the requested annexation. The annexation will become effective should the Jackson Town Council approve the necessary ordinance on January 21st.
