JACKSON, Wyo. — The Northern South Park survey and Teton County/Jackson Parks and Rec project surveys are reaching the end of the comment period.

Today, Sept. 7 is the last day to complete the Northern South Park survey and submit written comments on the four project areas. Community members can directly comment on documents pertaining to policy background, design concepts, character areas, and alternative comparisons.

The survey takes about 5-10 minutes to complete.

Teton County/Jackson Parks and Rec department currently has surveys open until Thursday, Sept. 9 for six projects.

The projects include ADA access and program inclusion, Miller Park improvements, Powderhorn Park improvements, the Wayne May Park master plan, the Rec Center Expansion, and Wilson boat ramp improvements.

An aspect of the surveys includes the opportunities for dog off-leash areas in Miller Park, Powderhorn Park and May Park. Parks & Rec has identified off-leash areas as a high priority item for the community.

In 2015, Jackson Hole News&Guide reported on an off-leash area proposed in Powderhorn Park. The proposal was shot down but the seasonal Teton County Fairgrounds dog park was approved the following year. There is currently no permanent dog park in the community.
