If you reside on the west side of the Tetons, keep an eye out for “A Community Assessment” flyer sent to all mailboxes in Teton County, Idaho and Alta, WY
In an effort to raise awareness about the proposed Grand Targhee expansion, the Alliance and nonprofit partners released “A Community Assessment” which outlines potential impacts of the proposed development. This assessment predates the release of Caribou-Targhee National Forest’s Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) and was created by the Jackson Hole Conservation Alliance (JHCA), Winter Wildlands Alliance (WWA), Valley Advocates for Responsible Development (VARD), Teton Backcountry Alliance (TBCA), and contributing topic experts to provide community members with a review of the proposed project and to ultimately aid individuals and organizations in writing effective comment letters throughout the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) review process. Once the DEIS is released, there will be a 90-day public comment period to review the document and respond to the Forest Service.
The full-length version of the assessment can be found at: https://www.grandtargheeca.org/ , where you can also download the assessment as a pdf. This week, we also released a condensed version mailed as a three-page flyer to all mailboxes in Teton County, Idaho and Alta, WY. Those who live on the east side of the Tetons can stop by the Alliance office at 685 S. Cache Street and pick up a copy of the flyer.
This outreach was made possible by the Cross Charitable Foundation. If you have any questions regarding the assessment, please email email@example.com.
