Comprehensive Plan Adopted

comp plan

After a lengthy five-year process, town and county officials last night adopted the Jackson Teton County Comprehensive Plan. Approximately 50 residents attended the three-hour meeting at Snow King’s Grandview Lodge and about half of those residents spoke during the public comment period. While some urged officials to adopt the plan, others discussed issues that have moved to the forefront during the final stages of the Comp Plan, such as adding a statement of intent and releasing specific development numbers. However, elected officials did not approve either of those options. Teton County Commission Chairman Ben Ellis said some of the items that residents wanted in the statement of intent are already included in the land-use document and that a statement of intent would prioritize those issues. Elected officials also explained that future land development regulations, which are to be tackled next, will determine specific development numbers. Under the new plan, promoting the stewardship of wildlife and natural resources is a main priority. The plan also aims for 60 percent of future development to occur in already developed areas and 40 percent in rural areas, and for 65 percent of the area’s workforce to be housed locally. The next step in the process is approving an implementation plan, which the Town and County planning commissions will review on May 16th, followed by Town and County elected officials on June 4th. – Robyn Vincent

  • A hunt with no disasters isn’t as much fun - October 24, 2014
    Not long ago, I saw a message on one of the hunting blogs I like to read. The writer wanted hunters to send in accounts of disasters they’d had in the field. I bet he got swamped with emails. Every hunter I know has had at least one calamity in the woods. If you hunt, […]

  • 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 […]
