Decision Inked To Sell BTNF Administrative Property

BTNF Office

Bridger Teton National Forest Supervisor Jacque Buchanan Friday signed a conveyance decision to sell ten acres of the administrative site on north Cache Street in Jackson to the Town of Jackson, and failing that, to place the property on the open market.  The acreage being sold is located on the eastern end of the 15.3 acre site.  However, Forest Spokesperson Mary Cernicek says there has been no decision about the fate of the Forest Supervisor’s office.  Cernicek says the actual location of where the Supervisor’s office will be housed is still undecided.  She says it could be in a new building or remodeled building at the current location in Jackson or it could be relocated to Alpine.  Displaced facilities including warehouse, fire cache and employee housing would be immediately relocated elsewhere on the forest.  The decision to pursue the sale came after a supplement to the EA for the project was released in February of 2012 and public comments on those documents were reviewed.  The environmental assessment on the property sale was completed in 2009, but there was no decision made.  So a supplement was  drafted stating that at a minimum, the existing supervisor’s office would be renovated with the proceeds from the sale of the back portion of the parcel. Cernicek explains that the current Supervisor’s office building was constructed in the 1960s and does not comply with existing codes for energy efficiency, earthquake loads or accessibility to Americans with disabilities.  The Final sale price for the land won’t be known until after an appraisal is completed the end of this month.

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]

  • Estimating range on waterfowl is easy - October 22, 2014
    If you’ve done any goose hunting, you’ve probably heard the term “skybusting.” You may know it means shooting at birds that are out of your shotgun’s effective range, but do you know if you’re guilty of it? You can set up your decoys to minimize the risk of shooting at birds when they’re too far […]
