County Hosts Virtual Open House on Special Events

outdoor events

Teton County staff will host a virtual open house to seek public input on proposed special event regulations on Monday June 29, 2020 at noon. The open house, hosted virtually on Zoom video conferencing, is open to the general public. Event planners and property owners that host events are encouraged to participate. 

In response to community feedback on the potential land use impacts of outdoor special events in some areas of the County, the Teton County Board of Commissioners is considering changes to the Land Development Regulations (LDRs). Planning Staff has prepared a proposed LDR text amendment that would require large outdoor events or those that host overnight camping to obtain an approved Conditional Use Permit from the Board of County Commissioners. 

Current regulations only require sites that host outdoor events more than three times per year to obtain an approved Conditional Use Permit from the Board of County Commissioners. To better evaluate the impacts of regulatory change to the local outdoor event business sector, the public is invited to join Planning Staff for a public discussion prior to a Board decision on this item.
