Planning Division

Welcome to the Teton County Planning Division Website

Our mission at Teton County Planning is to be advocates of the community’s stated vision and to guide changes to meet the community’s aspirations. 

If you have planning related questions, including but not limited to zoning, permit submittals, natural resources, etc. we invite you to check out our new FAQ page! 

COUNTY OUTDOOR EVENT SITE REGULATIONS 

In response to community feedback on the potential land use impacts of outdoor special events in some areas of the County, the Teton County Board of Commissioners is considering changes to the Land Development Regulations (LDRs). Planning Staff has prepared a proposed LDR text amendment that would require large outdoor events or those that host overnight camping to obtain an approved Conditional Use Permit from the Board of County Commissioners. Current regulations only require sites that host outdoor events more than three times per year to obtain an approved Conditional Use Permit from the Board of County Commissioners. A Public open house will be held via Zoom on June 29th at noon and the BCC will consider the item at their July 7th regular meeting. Visit the long-range planning page for more information.

PUBLIC COMMENT ON PLANNING ITEMS: 

To ensure physical distancing, public comment on applications is encouraged to be mailed or emailed prior to the public hearing at which the item is scheduled to be heard. Public comment can be sent directly to the Planner assigned to the project or emailed to planningcom@tetoncountywy.gov or mailed to PO Box 1727 Jackson, WY 83001. Public comment can also be made by phone during Planning Commission or Board of County Commissioner public hearings.
