Teton County Administration Building

If you're a planning guru ready to get comfy with a sheaf of redlined county code, grab a glass of red wine and get ready to dig in.

The results of the county's biennial land development regulation clean up are in.

Better yet, they're posted online at JacksonTetonPlan.com.

There, the redlined document (yes, this time there is a redline) is accompanied with a guide that describes changes, lists them by category, and points readers to the section in the update where the change is occurring.

The land development regulation cleanup is not intended to substantially change policy. Instead, it's supposed to address "minor typos and corrections, clarifications, compliance with other law and regulations, codification of existing practice for transparency and clarity, and minor policy tweaks," Teton County Director of General Services Sarah Mann wrote in a press release.

Two public meetings to review and, ultimately approve, the code clean up are scheduled.

The first, a county planning commission meeting, is set for 6 p.m. June 8. The second, a meeting of the Teton County Board of County Commissioners, is set for 9 a.m. July 7. 

Commissioners will have the final say on approving the changes.

Written public comment can be provided in advance of the meetings in one of two ways: Send an email to rrooney@tetoncountywy.gov or mail a letter to P.O. Box 1727, Jackson, WY, 83001.
