Of the record 15 projects county voters approved to fund with a penny of the local 6-cent sales tax over the next approximately 10 years, those first in line for full funding are either inexpensive or closer to done.

Commissioners approved a schedule Tuesday to fund for the first year of specific purpose excise tax collections. According to the latest projections, by November 2024 these projects will get their full SPET request: senior assisted living planning ($1.93 million), sidewalks for the Town of Jackson ($3 million) and improvements for three buildings that belong to youth crisis support nonprofit Teton Youth and Family Services ($2 million).

Senior assisted living planning: $1.93 million. That's a lot for planning. How much will that final product cost. Where will it be located?
