Monday's joint information meeting is slated to be chock full of discussions about housing and local housing policy.
After discussing the Jackson Hole Airport's budget request, the Jackson Town Council and Teton County Board of County Commissioners are set to start off the housing discussion with a conversation about a new Housing Nexus Study, which provides the data underpinning Teton County's housing mitigation program. That's a policy that requires developers to build or pay for employee housing when they're constructing new commercial or residential buildings.
Norton will then present the Housing Supply Plan and her request to put $13 million toward housing projects over the next fiscal year.
The conversation is set to wrap up with discussion about approving the 2021 Indicator Report. In draft form, that document shows that housing costs are increasing, but the percentage of the Teton County workforce living in Teton County may be stabilizing.
The 2012 Jackson/Teton County Comprehensive Plan set a goal of housing 65% of the workforce locally, and the number has hovered between 58% and 59% in the last few years of reports. But some planning commissioners questioned whether the number is actually lower.
The joint information meeting is scheduled to start at 2 p.m. with the discussion of the airport's budget and will be held virtually.
