Wild Animal Feeding and Bear Conflict Area LDR Update

Project Summary: Proposal to amend the Teton County Land Development Regulations (LDRs), to amend Section 5.1.3, Wild Animal Feeding and add bear conflict standards within this section, and remove Section 5.2.2. Bear Conflict Area Standards.  This amendment is being led by the Teton County Planning Division at the direction of the Teton County Board of County Commissioners to update the Natural Resource Land Development Regulations in phases.  The proposed amendments would include standards for feeding of wildlife (prohibition), keeping of wildlife attractants, and removal of the bear conflict zones which would require bear proof trash containers countywide.
