Teton County Commissioners have passed a hold on applications for new cell phone towers in the county.
Commission chair Paul Vogelheim says the hold is meant to provide time for the county to update their land use regulations in what he described as “a balancing act”.
Vogelheim says that the county will look into several creative solutions to help meet the county’s service needs while leaving scenic views and landscapes undisturbed.
Teton County's commissioners are seeking new regulations on cell phone towers in the county due to concerns that new towers could impede scenic views.
In the meantime, they’re considering a moratorium on all applications for new towers.
