Workforce housing for linemen, LVE employees clears first hurdle
Lower Valley Energy is one step closer to approval for an employee housing development on S. Highway 89 after a Monday night nod from the county planning commission.
“This is a great thing,” Planning Commissioner Kasey Mateosky said. “We talk growth, we talk affordable housing, but then we say no. We always say no.”
Advocating for bucking that trend, Mateosky was perhaps the most enthusiastic member on the commission, which reviews and opines on development issues before they go to the Teton County Board of County Commissioners for a final vote.
