JACKSON, Wyo. — The Jackson Town Council will meet Monday, Jan. 10 to discuss a variety of topics including the Equity Task Force, the sketch plan for new luxury apartments at Cache and Pearl, a speed limit reduction for Rodeo Drive, and a 2.5% mid-year wage adjustment for town employees and joint department employees, amongst other items.

The virtual meeting begins at 6 p.m

Susana Scarlata, community engagement specialist will present information about the Equity Task Force appointments and stipends. The application period for Equity Task Force members closed on Dec. 17. According to the staff report, 37 applications were submitted. Based on the number of qualified applicants, town staff is recommending a nine-member task force rather than the previously suggested seven-member task force. The Equity Task Force is slated to begin monthly meetings in April 2022.

The council will also be presented the sketch plan for the development of the “Condos at Cache + Pearl.” The development encompasses 7 lots located at 50 S. Cache Street and 45 and 75 E. Pearl Avenue. The Planning Commission approved the sketch plan on Dec. 1.

The proposed plan includes six commercial spaces on the ground level. Levels two and three include a total of 17 short-term rental condos, seven 2-bedrooms and ten 3-bedrooms. All 17 condos will be allowed to be used for both short-term rental and long-term rental and can be owner-occupied. There are zero deed-restricted units included in the plan. The development does not require housing mitigation based on the existing credits attached to the properties. The new development requires 6.57 mitigation units but the current property holds 10.43 mitigation credits.

Jackson Police Chief Michelle Weber will then present a discussion to consider a reduction in the speed limit from 25 mph to 20 mph in a specified residential area of Rodeo Drive. Council will discuss leaving the speed as is or directing staff to conduct an informal assessment of traffic patterns, speeds and motor vehicle safety in the area.
