The County Commission has kicked the can down the road on the Gill family's request for a 74-acre upzone intended to pave the way for a 300-plus unit housing development on the Jackson Hole Hereford Ranch.
The decision extends an eight-month odyssey that has seen people representing varying perspectives of the proposal squaring off. One perspective comes from the Gill family and members of the community who support the project; they are seeking a speedy rezoning to address the housing crisis. Another perspective has come from housing advocates and conservationists who are also looking for housing for Teton County workers, but they are seeking more guarantees about affordability than the Gills proposed.
The Teton County Board of County Commissioners voted 5-0 to continue discussion on the proposal, seeking more time to muddle through potential conditions on the rezone proposed by members of the board.
