Don’t press pause on the Comprehensive Plan Update

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.

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.
