Planning is about shaping development to meet our community vision, not the other way around.
The Teton County Board of County Commissioners will be discussing what government projects to pause given the coronavirus crisis on Monday, April 13th. What to pause, and what to continue, is directly linked to the future development of Northern South Park. In case you missed it, the Gill family is proposing to develop 488 lots on the Hereford Ranch (more on that once a formal application has been submitted).
We believe that if the community is best served by pausing the Comp Plan Update / Growth Management Program, then all development applications should be paused too. But planning is a powerful tool in times of uncertainty, and given that the Comp Plan update is almost finalized, we shouldn’t delay action on our community’s highest priority goals.
