Growth Management Program (GMP) Review & Update

This project is a systematic review of the effectiveness of our current Growth Management Program for the Town and County as it relates to Comprehensive Plan principles, policies, strategies, and indicators. The goal is to check-in and identify any corrective actions that are needed to better implement the Comprehensive Plan's community vision. The Growth Management Program review was triggered in 2016 upon hitting the 5% growth trigger built into the Comprehensive Plan update process when it was adopted in 2012. After completing many major Comp Plan implementation projects in the Engage 2017 initiative, the Town of Jackson and Teton County are now prepared to jointly reflect on Comp Plan principles, policies, and strategies to better achieve our major goals.

Community Survey Open Through September 18th! 

A key component of this review and update process is public outreach and engaging with the community to gather meaningful feedback. We want to know what your experience has been in the Town of Jackson and Teton County over the last five years. Is it easier or harder to live here than it was five years ago? Is it easier or more difficult to get around? These are just a couple of things we want the community to reflect on as we continue throughout this update process.

Please take a few minutes to answer a brief survey to share your experiences with the town and county. The survey can be accessed HERE
