For Immediate Release


Wednesday, April 25, 2018, Jackson, WY – The Engage 2017 process to develop policy updates for Town Zoning and Parking, Housing Requirements, Natural Resource Protections, and Housing Rules and Regulations is in its final phase. Last Friday, the Affordable Housing Department release the final draft of the Housing Rules and Regulations.


This draft represents the final product for consideration by the Jackson Town Council and the Teton County Board of Commissioners. There will be two more Joint (Town and County) meetings for both elected bodies to review the Rules and Regulations: May 21 at 2:00pm at Town Hall (second reading), and June 4 at 3:00pm at Town Hall (third reading and adoption).


Over one year of outreach, public input, policy development and review have led to the final draft of the Rules and Regulations. The full Rules and Regulations draft can be accessed here: https://www.tetoncountywy.gov/DocumentCenter/View/6518.


“Affordable housing is about creating a community first and resort second,” said April Norton, Affordable Housing Department Director. “It’s about ensuring we house our teachers, law enforcement, servers, coaches and other members of the local workforce. Updating these Rules and Regulations is an important piece of that work and we are grateful for the active participation and input from residents across the County.”


More detailed information related to the overall Engage 2017 process, including upcoming meetings and input opportunities, a record of past meetings, policy summary documents and videos, frequently asked questions, and more, is available at: https://www.engage2017.jacksontetonplan.com/
