Subarea 7.2 Hog Island Home Business Rezone

Project Summary: Update the zoning in Subarea 7.2: Hog Island Home Business to align with the desired future character for the area as described in the Jackson/Teton County Comprehensive Plan. Subarea 7.2 Hog Island Home Business is part of District 7: South Highway 89, which is designated as a Complete Neighborhood in the Comprehensive Plan and also includes Subarea 7.1: South Park Business Park. This project will create new County zoning for the Land Development Regulations (LDRs) that preserves and enhances the character of Subarea 7.2.

Teton County Planning Staff has created a survey to gather input from residents, neighbors, and home business owners with interest in the Hog Island area to help inform a future proposal for updates to the zoning and land development regulations in Hog Island. This survey is open to all and will take most people between 10 and 20 minutes to complete. Please feel free to share the survey with friends, family, and neighbors. This survey will remain open through Sunday, August 1, 2021. We hope that you can find time this month to share your thoughts with us.

July 7, 2021: Neighborhood Meeting Presentation Materials

On July 1, Teton County Planning Staff hosted a neighborhood meeting to introduce to this project at Munger Mountain Elementary School and on Zoom. A recording of the presentation and subsequent discussion is embedded below. Note that questions asked in the room are difficult to hear due to the technical limitations of the space. The staff presentation concludes after the first 15 minutes.

Some of the topics discussed after the presentation included:

  • Need for businesses and services vs. impacts of commercial development
  • Current zoning allowances in this subarea. There are a number of legacy zones (NC-TC, S-TC, R-TC) currently in place in the subarea
  • Current subdivision allowances and appropriate size for new lots
  • Taxes and property values
  • Communication between neighbors and reducing conflicts between business and residential uses
