The tabs of this website will allow you to test, refine, and map new zoning concepts for the rural areas of Jackson/Teton County.
The concepts you will examine on this site would apply everywhere in the County except Town of Jackson, Wilson,
Aspens, Teton Village, South Park Business Center, Hog Island, Resorts (such as Jackson Hole Golf and Tennis).
WHAT'S THE GOAL?
These concepts will ultimately become regulations, incentives, and programs that implement the community's Comprehensive Plan, which outlines a vision for Rural Areas that includes:
- Preservation of large, contiguous open spaces
- Preservation of key habitats, habitat connections, and scenic vistas
- Preservation of agricultural heritage
- Acknowledgement of a base property right of 1 unit per 35 acres or 1 unit per lot
- Allowing less than 40% of growth to occur in Rural Areas
