On Tuesday January 28, 2020 the Board of County Commissioners and Town Council will consider a draft Request for Qualifications for a Housing Nexus Study that will provide information about the maximum affordable housing requirement the Town and County could charge developers of residential and commercial development. The study will document current links between the construction of new development or redevelopment and the employees generated by the development. The study will also provide information about the types of jobs being created, the wages being earned, the percentage of the workforce living locally, and the gap between income and housing costs. You can read the entire staff report here. The Board and Council will discuss this item at 1:00 PM on January 28, 2020.
At 3:00 PM on Tuesday, the Council will discuss the public-private-partnership workforce housing development at 430 & 440 West Kelly Avenue. This property was deeded from the Jackson Teton County Housing Authority to the Town of Jackson on January 22, 2020. The Town Council will now determine how the project moves forward, including the number of units and bedrooms, and affordability. The staff report for this item can be found here.
