The Application is requesting that the subject parcel be assigned a zone, specifically Rural-3 as it currently does not contain any zoning. The parcel is approximately 300 feet from the nearest roadway, Craighead Lane. The parcel is surrounded by National Park land and is therefore a private “inholding”. The parcel is owned by Todd Alan Moulton who seeks a formal Teton County zoning designation to be allowed to pursue development and use of the site.
The parcel is ±325 feet long, and ±15 feet wide. The parcel is unusually shaped as it was originally intended as a public roadway, according to National Park Service (NPS) comments which are included in this packet. The surrounding privately owned parcels are zoned Rural-3. It appears that at some point in time the roadway to access the currently existing private inholdings on the Craighead ridgeline was moved 300 feet to the east.
