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.

    Monday night, or more accurately early Tuesday morning, there was a total lunar eclipse. And being the experienced nature photographer I am, you’d think I was ready with my camera. But you’d be wrong. The last total lunar eclipse visible in Wyoming was way back in 2009, if I’m not mistaken. So I’ve been looking […]

  • Back to normal at the trap range - April 17, 2014
    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]
