Beginning Thursday, October 27, the planning team and our elected officials will begin to gather public input on Phase II of the Character Districts.
It’s important for our elected officials to hear, once again, that our community does not support additive growth. With so much development already in the pipeline, adding the potential for more growth in what is supposed to be a 10-15 year plan makes no sense.
We need to protect our rural community and small mountain town. Please consider attending a community workshop or speaking directly to your elected officials. While you may be frustrated about giving your input once again, this is an essential time to speak up.
This is your plan. Provide comments in the way you feel most comfortable. Ask questions. Be specific as possible and ask that the Character District portion of the plan provide the predictability that the community is looking for.

In late October, Phase Two of the Character District process will get underway. Public meetings are scheduled for October 27,28,29,31 and November 1. These meetings will focus on defining the desired character for the various districts discussed in Phase One of the process.

Recap: In late September, Phase One of the Character District Development process came to a close. The planning team held two days of open house workshops to identify district boundaries for “complete neighborhoods” and “rural areas”.
High ozone levels detected in Pinedale prompted SHJH, with a number of volunteers, to monitor our levels in Teton County starting in January of 2010.
The results from the first year of the study are in.
