Town Council Shoots Down Housing Density


In a move that seemed to defy the conventional wisdom on housing, the Jackson Town Council denied an application to increase density on a block of town near Snow King.


The property located on South Glenwood Street is zoned Auto Urban Residential with commercial office use. The request for the re-zone would have removed all commercial use of the property and increased the number of housing units that could be built.


Both the Planning Commission and the Planning Director asked the council to approve the request. Alex Norton, the Town’s long Range Planner said the zoning was the one tool available to address the housing supply crisis in the community.


Only councilor Hailey Morton-Levinson supported the effort in a 4-1 vote.
