(JACKSON, Wyo) Bridger-Teton National Forest has announced that it has accepted an offer for a portion of the administrative site in downtown Jackson. Forest Spokesperson Mary Cernicek says the offer on the ten acres that were listed for sale is $12-million. She says the contract was actually signed late Friday afternoon. With the sale, she says the forest is going to finalize the plans and design work that remains. Cernicek says, “The Forest is actually anticipating the closing on the sale to be this fall, with construction starting as soon as the snow starts to melt in the early spring of 2015.” Proceeds from the sale will be used to reconstruct facilities including the replacement of the Forest Supervisor’s Office on the remaining 5-acre parcel, as well as warehouse, and the conversion of the Jackson District Office into housing for temporary employees. Cernicek says the Forest had received a previous offer on the parcel for $11.5-million, but that offer was withdrawn last November. The latest buyer has not been identified.
