Have your friends been driving down to Cheyenne to get the state legislature to take away our local authority over land-use and development?
At the Jackson Hole Conservation Alliance, we believe that protecting what we love about this place – the wildlife, the wild places, and the community character – needs a strong community over the long run. We need committed people living here who will stand up for what makes Jackson Hole unique, so it doesn’t get destroyed by the endless line-up of bad ideas to turn this magical valley into short-term profits – whether oil wells, outlet malls, or massive new downtown hotels. We need a strong and diverse middle class stewarding our lands and wildlife, volunteering, and voting for elected representatives who care.
And we need to ferociously protect our local autonomy and local decision-making authority. Losing it could utterly destroy what makes our community unique.
