Teton Valley Seeks Comp Plan

Teton County, Idaho conducted its first Core Committee meeting last night as it moves into the fact-finding phase of building a new comprehensive plan for the county.  The last time the county has gone through this process, says County Planner Angie Rutherford, was in 2004.  Rutherford points out that the goal is to end up with a “community-based plan.”  As such, Rutherford says the county set up a “Plan for Planning” committee made up of 8 people representing various interests, who in turn launched a public survey last year in which about 800 people shared what they believed was important to the county.  The committee also recommended a consulting team and established a citizens’ advisory team aligned with five specific content areas: natural resources and outdoor recreation, community events and facilities, rural character and agricultural heritage, economic development, and transportation.  Rutherford says the chairpersons of each of those areas compose that core committee which met with the county’s commissioners last night.  Rutherford says the county hopes to be able to keep the complex process relatively brief.
