County seeks developers for Mercill housing


Teton County officials are seeking developers to build at least 22 units of affordable housing on county-owned land on Mercill Avenue.

Under a new development model, the Jackson/Teton County Affordable Housing Department buys land and then requests proposals from private developers to build employee housing. The town and county maintain ownership of the land while the developer owns improvements and rents or sells the units, sharing project risk. Commissioners approved a request for proposals for 105 Mercill on Tuesday and released it Wednesday.

The site is next to the Children’s Learning Center and near schools, parks and a START bus stop. Zoning allows for building up to three stories and calls for “a vibrant, mixed-use” area with retail, office, lodging and residential activities.
