Bear resistant trash containers are coming to a neighborhood near you soon. The Teton County Commissioners have approved the adoption of amendments to the Teton County Land Development Regulations to update the wildlife feeding and bear conflict area standards.
This amendment proposal was made by the Teton County Planning Division at the direction of the Teton County Board of Commissioners to update the Natural Resource Land Development Regulations in phases.
The proposed amendments would update and clarify certain standards related to wildlife feeding requirements and bear conflict areas in the LDRs, and requirement for bear resistant trash containers county-wide. However, the revised regulations do not include the town of Jackson.
