Subarea 5.6 Northern South Park Neighborhood Plan
Project Summary: Prepare a conceptual Neighborhood Plan for Subarea 5.6 Northern South Park to best allocate the community’s remaining residential density within the overall cap in a manner that optimizes balanced Comprehensive Plan goals and informs future zoning decisions and development patterns. The Plan will focus on physical design, both public and private realm and site planning, as well as developing the related policies and tools necessary for successful implementation. The primary goal is to develop a community vision for this area, and to expand the affordable and workforce housing development opportunities in the community consistent with the vision and chapter goals identified in the soon to be updated 2012 Jackson/Teton County Comprehensive Plan. The Plan will include an implementation component describing a path forward for the rezoning and development of the area.
> October 21, 2020: Open Call for Stakeholder and Steering Committee Applications
As our community embarks on creating a new neighborhood focused on supporting and enhancing our shared values, you are invited to join the planning effort. Teton County and the Town of Jackson are seeking interested Stakeholders and Steering Committee members to help create a Neighborhood Plan for Northern South Park. The Neighborhood Plan process will determine the future character and allowable development for Northern South Park. Members of the public who have an interest in the planning process for the future of this area and our community are encouraged to apply for either or both participation options.
Selected Stakeholders will be interviewed or surveyed about their concerns, interests, and knowledge of the area as part of the public engagement process for the Neighborhood Plan. Additionally, members of the community who would like to be more involved and to help guide the planning process may identify their interest in serving on a Steering Committee. Steering Committee members will be required to dedicate significant time to this effort by attending 2-4 meetings per month between November 2020 and July 2021 to provide consistent feedback to the project team (meeting dates and times TBD).
Neighborhood planning for Northern South Park, also known as Subarea 5.6, is identified in the draft update to the Jackson/Teton County Comprehensive Plan. The upcoming neighborhood planning process is the next step in implementing the community vision for this area. In addition to the Stakeholder interviews and Steering Committee, the public will have more opportunities for participation through community meetings, online surveys, charettes, open houses and other forms of engagement that will be determined once a planning and design consultant has been identified.
