Calendar of Events
This is the spot to keep track of many wildlife friendly and nature events in Jackson Hole. You’ll not only find the JHWF events like fence projects, Nature Mapping certification trainings, potlucks & picnics, but also events of interest from the wildlife-loving community in Teton County.
June 1 | Town and County Open House for Community Input on Planning Projects
June 1, 2017 – The Town of Jackson and Teton County will host an Open House and Community Discussion on local wildlife, workforce housing and other topics at the Center for the Arts on June 1. The Open House portion of the event will take place from 12:00pm to 8:00pm, and the Community Discussion will be held from 5:30pm to 8:00pm.
The event is part of the Town and County Planning Department’s new initiative for inviting community discussion and input on updates to regulations that will have widespread implications for the community. Public engagement in this process is a critical priority of both the Town and County.
The event is intended to collect public feedback on how the Town and County should approach the following five questions:
- What can be done to protect wildlife habitat and improve water quality?
- Where should workforce housing be built?
- Where is parking an issue and how can parking be improved?
- What role should businesses and developers play in providing workforce housing?
- Who should qualify for deed-restricted housing and what rules should apply to them?
Each of these questions is associated with a project currently underway to update Town and County regulations. These projects include updates to Natural Resource Regulations, Town Zoning Updates (outside the Downtown), a Town Parking Study (outside the Downtown), Housing Requirements Updates, and Housing Department Rules and Regulations Updates. Additional details on all projects, as well as updates and public engagement information can be found at www.jacksontetonplan.com.
