Commissioners Will Vote Again On Expansion

Jackson, Wy – The Teton County Commission has agreed to
reconsider a project that would expand Teton Village, a resort
development at the base of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.
The commission voted three-two against the plan last week. But
today (Tuesday), Commissioner Leland Christiansen asked the
commission to reconsider.
Christiansen had been among the three who had voted no. With his
approval, the commission agreed to hold a second vote June 21st.
The proposal for Teton Village calls for building 466 new
houses, 81-thousand square feet of commercial space, an 18-hole
golf course, skier parking, parks, paths and other amenities.
But two other commissioners who voted against the plan say they haven't changed their minds. They include Commissioner Jim Darwiche who says the proposal still wouldn't provide enough open space and affordable housing.
