*****Important Notice *****

Planning Department Website Update for March 18, 2020

As directed by the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention and leadership, the Town of Jackson is implementing social distancing practices to minimize health risks to our community in regards to the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes temporary modifications to the process for the submittal and review of development applications.  In addition, the procedures for public meetings, such as for the Planning Commission and Design Review Committee (DRC), will also be modified. See below for more details.

To Contact Planning Staff: The Planning office in Town Hall is closed to the public until further notice. However, to the maximum extent possible, Planning Department employees will continue to work remotely, so we will be available by phone and email during regular business hours to answer your questions. We do not anticipate any disruption in services provided unless an employee is ill.

To Meet with Staff: In-person meetings with staff are temporarily suspended. Any meeting that cannot be handled through a telephone conference call (e.g., preapplication meeting), may be conducted through various virtual meeting formats (e.g., Facetime, Webex, etc.).

Public Meetings: Public meetings for the Town Council, Planning Commission, and DRC will generally continue on regular schedules. However, due to the need to avoid concentrating people, the Town will implement procedural changes intended not only to meet due process legal requirements but to protect public health. These changes may include the use of various virtual meeting formats (Webex) and other methods to facilitate remote public comment and decision-maker consideration. Please check this section for updates in the near future.

Payments: Please call Tiffany at 307-734-3478 for development permit payments[PA1] via credit card.

Delivery of Non-digital Material: If you have non-digital material that needs to be delivered, please contact the planning or building employee with whom you have been working for instructions on delivery.

Submitting a development application: Submitting an application for any type of development permit is the same as normal with the following changes and notes:

  • Application must be in all-digital format: Both application form and required materials (and addendums) must be all-digital and sent to Office Manager, Tiffany Stolte, at She can also be reached at (307) 734-3478.
  • All physical development (height, setbacks, parking, etc.) must be clearly measured and scaled to allow LDR compliance verification.
  • All applications will be reviewed within the requirements of the Land Development Regulations (LDRs), however, expect that applications will likely be completed closer to the maximum deadline than is typical.

We are still working on the final details.  We appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding as we work to maintain the health of our community and provide responsive service. Please feel free to call or contact the Planning Department with any questions or concerns. We have a list of our employee contacts on the Planning Department website.
