Officials slow comp plan update
Updating the community’s vision for Teton County is slowing, a move intended to give the public more time to digest updates to one of the county’s guiding documents as people respond to COVID-19.
The decision was reached Monday after commissioners spent hours at two meetings going back and forth over how to handle updates to the 2012 Jackson/Teton Comprehensive Plan. While there was no official vote, three commissioners’ voices outweighed the other two, supporting working with the town to slow — but not halt — the process known as the growth management program.
“I’m glad to see that we’re moving towards a slower schedule,” Commissioner Luther Propst said. “I think that’s compatible with where we are right now as a society and compatible with the importance of this comp plan.”
