Skipping sketch in horse creek

Jackson Hole Community Housing Trust Executive Director Anne Cresswell stands in the 13.13 acres recently zoned suburban south of town in Horse Creek. After a change to the local land use law, housing here will come six to eight months sooner.

Some housing projects that are 100% deed-restricted can now be developed much faster in Teton County.

The Teton County Board of County Commissioners voted 3-2 on Tuesday to allow entirely deed-restricted housing proposals in the county’s suburban zone to skip their sketch plan. Commissioners Luther Propst and Mark Newcomb voted in opposition.

Sprawling development in JH is bad. The proper location for density is in the commercial corridor of Jackson where people won't need to drive everywhere.
