Want to comment on the proposed whitewater park?

JACKSON HOLE, WYO – The Teton Board of County Commissioners will be reviewing and discussing a proposed whitewater park on the Snake River near the South Park boat ramp on Tuesday, August 15, as part of their regularly scheduled County Commission meeting starting at 9am.

Members of the public will have the opportunity to provide comment on the proposal. Currently, the Jackson Hole River Parks Project (JHRPP) is requesting that the Board of Commissioners direct county staff to initiate the planning review process, which could involve beginning a Conditional Use Permit process. Commissioners will not be considering approval of the overall project; rather, they will be discussing how it should proceed through the County’s planning and community review process.

Representatives from the JHRPP, as well as consultants from River Restoration (RRO) and Parks and Recreation staff, provided an informational presentation to commissioners in late June.

This potential project is in the beginning stages, and the Board of Commissioners hopes to solicit input from a diverse set of stakeholders and interested citizens to help guide the outcome.
