March 21, 2022: Project Approved

At the March 15, 2022 Board of County Commissioners meeting, the Board approved the proposed Workforce Home Business (WHB) Zone and proposed Zoning Map Amendments. One modification was made to the proposed WHB Zone, following the Planning Commission's recommendation to raise the habitable floor area maximum for properties created under the WHB Option from 2,500 square feet to 3,000 square feet. 

The Board of County Commissioners also directed the Jackson/Teton County Affordable Housing Dept. to review the existing Workforce Deed Restriction Templates and to consider developing a new template specially designed to be used with the Workforce Home Business Option in this location. A workshop with the Board of County Commissioners will be scheduled in the future to begin a discussion of existing templates and regulations and to get direction on a WHB template.

July 7, 2021: Neighborhood Meeting Presentation Materials

On July 1, Teton County Planning Staff hosted a neighborhood meeting to introduce to this project at Munger Mountain Elementary School and on Zoom. A recording of the presentation and subsequent discussion is embedded below. Note that questions asked in the room are difficult to hear due to the technical limitations of the space. The staff presentation concludes after the first 15 minutes.
