Teton County Continues With Comprehensive Plan

Jackson, Wy – Jackson and Teton County are asking for public input on a plan that would shape future development. Jackson Planning Director Tyler Sinclair says the plan has prompted a lot of public debate. But he says one message is clear: most residents want Jackson Hole to feel like a community, not like a resort. He says, under the new plan, no new resorts would be approved.
" as far as looking at brand new resorts, I think we've heard increased resort expansion in Teton County and in the Town of Jackson isn't necessarily something the community is interested in."
Last month, Teton County imposed a temporary moratorium on new subdivisions over 20 acres. County Planning Director Jeff Daugherty says the moratorium will hold until they receive public input on the new plan.
