The Jackson Hole Conservation Alliance thanks everyone who made their voice heard by voting in this election. We are especially thankful to our community for supporting select investments that will make it safer to walk and bike and create affordable homes for our middle class.
While it’s disappointing that Teton County voters did not support all of the measures that would have helped reduce congestion and create affordable homes for our middle class, our community now has the opportunity to continue the conversation about how to best address our housing and transportation challenges, and to expand this conversation to include how we can address our community’s highest priority – protecting wildlife and improving habitat connectivity.
We look forward to a robust community conversation regarding how we can align our investments with our values through measures that protect wildlife habitat and make it safer for wildlife to cross our roads.
