Now is the time for our community to support our County Commission to update the existing Wildlife Feeding Land Development Regulation to better protect our community and wildlife
On February 28, the Teton County Planning Commission approved a revised version of Section 5.1.3: Wildlife Feeding and Bear Conflict Area in our community’s Land Development Regulations (LDR). The updated version of Section 5.1.3 has been through multiple iterations and we are grateful for the immense amount of work that the Planning Commission, staff, and community members have put into the draft so far. The updated version contains measures that will greatly improve human-wildlife coexistence in Teton County. We support the overall updated language on securing attractants and feeding regulations county-wide, and most notably, the expansion to a county-wide requirement of Interagency Grizzly Bear Committee (IGBC) approved bear-resistant trash cans.
On April 12th, the County Commission will review the updated version. We need your help to show the Commission our community supports approving and adopting the revised Wildlife Feeding regulation as soon as possible.
Join the Alliance and our partners in urging the County to approve the revised version of Section 5.1.3! See our joint comment letter here for talking points.
