Who pays for affordable housing and who gets to live in it?
JACKSON HOLE, WYO – Town and county planners are putting the final touches on the direction the community is headed as far as the approach to affordable housing.
The new Housing Supply Plan 2017-2021 was just officially approved by town and county leaders during a Joint Information Meeting on Monday. The plan was crafted with the help of consultants Clarion. Input was solicited for 45 days from the public via online surveys. The plan is expected to have a shelf life of five years.
A public comment event will be hosted by the Town of Jackson and Teton County. The ‘Community Discussion Public Comment Event on Housing’ will take place on October 9 at the Snow King Grand View Lodge from 6-8:30pm.
The ‘Public Comment Event on Housing’ is part of a larger regulatory update to housing, parking, and natural resource regulations that the Town and County started last spring. The tagline ‘Engage 2017: Housing, Parking & Natural Resources’ refers to all five of the projects associated with this update. The October 9 public comment event will focus on only two of these projects: Housing Requirements: Modernizing our Housing Mitigation Land Development Regulations, and Housing Rules & Regulations.
Collectively, these two projects will help the community decide who pays for affordable housing in our community and who gets to live in affordable housing.
For those who cannot make the event, there are two online surveys:
