Community Survey on Comp Plan Released

The joint Jackson/Teton County Comprehensive Plan is meant to protect the health, safety, and welfare of our community and preserve our community character for future generations. With its adoption in 2012, our community decided to work together toward the following Vision:

“Preserve and protect the area’s ecosystem in order to ensure a healthy environment, community and economy for current and future generations.”

The Jackson/Teton Comprehensive Plan is designed to be a living plan, able to proactively adapt to changing conditions and community needs. The success of our policy implementation is analyzed through the Growth Management Program to ensure that we are achieving our Vision. As we identify our successes and failures in achieving our Vision, we will adapt our policies and their implementation, continuously progressing through the cycle. Triggers were built into the Plan to tell us when the Growth Management Program needs to be reviewed with the opportunity to make any corrective action necessary in a Comp Plan Update. One such trigger is a 5% growth in the number of residential units in the Town and County beyond the approximately 10,000 dwelling units existing at the time of the Plan’s adoption in 2012. That 5% growth trigger has been reached and they Town and County are currently following through with a Growth Management Program review and Comprehensive Plan update. The goal is to check-in and identify any corrective actions that are needed to better implement the Comprehensive Plan's community Vision.

A key component of this review and update process is public outreach and engaging with the community to gather meaningful feedback. We want to know what your experience has been in the Town of Jackson and Teton County over the last five years. Is it easier or harder to live here than it was five years ago? Is it easier or more difficult to get around? These are just a couple of things we want the community to reflect on as we continue throughout this update process.

We would love to hear your voice! Please take a few minutes to answer our very brief survey and let us know what you think. The survey can be accessed HERE  The survey will close September 18th.

Stay tuned for more information on a community event informing and celebrating this update process and to learn more about survey results and next steps in this project.
