Suit Challenges Comp Plan Adoption

July 19, 2012 Jackson Hole, Teton County, Town of Jackson No Comments
Acri

Members of Save Historic Jackson Hole have sued the Town of Jackson maintaining the joint Comprehensive Plan was illegally adopted – not providing the public the final say on the plan.  Save Historic Jackson Hole Executive Director Armond Acri explains that the suit actually focuses on process rather than content of the plan.  Acri says while there was a public process and public comment was taken, many people believe they were not listened to.  Now that it has been adopted by resolution, state statute does not allow citizens to challenge resolutions. Acri says while other individuals have joined the suit, Save Historic Jackson Hole is actually spearheading the action.  At this point, Acri says, the town will need to respond to the suit before the litigation moves forward. However, he thinks it is a matter than can be quickly resolved. Acri says if indeed town is confident this plan does represent the will of the people, they should be willing to obtain the public’s official endorsement through a vote and so have that much more confidence that the final plan is the right one.

However, because this is a program about the outdoors, I’ll just talk about the things in the outdoors I’m thankful for. There’s plenty of it. Especially here in Wyoming. We’ve got […]
  • Pelts are nearing prime conditions - November 26, 2014
    The days are getting shorter and the nights are getting longer. It’s the amount of daylight, and not the temperature, that causes wild animals to grow longer, thicker coats. If you’re a predator hunter or a trapper, that’s your cue. The pelts are coming into their prime right now, but that doesn’t mean they’re at […]
