Officials want master plan for Northern South Park housing
Circumstances are in flux at two properties crucial to the future of housing in Teton County, prompting elected officials to modify their approach Monday to planning for residential development there.
In the past two weeks the county approved the sale of a 5-acre parcel of land on the West Bank, and the Gill family proposed a housing project on 100 acres at the north end of South Park. The shifting landscape changes the calculus of where officials will focus their energy as they try to offset Jackson Hole’s housing shortage.
After the revelation last week of the Gills’ interest in developing nearly 500 lots just south of High School Road, elected officials showed a new sense of urgency and a desire to quickly craft a master plan to guide growth on what is now the northwest corner of the Jackson Hole Hereford Ranch.
