Tribal Trail Connector Road  

Teton County is in the preliminary stages of an environmental study, design, and potential construction of the 2,600-ft long (approximately 0.5-mile) segment of Tribal Trail Road that extends from Cherokee Lane North to Wyoming Highway 22 (WYO 22). The Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) is serving as an agent to the project to deliver the project and implement the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process. An Environmental Assessment is being prepared consistent with NEPA. Teton County is currently seeking feedback from the community on the Tribal Trail Connector Project.

Energy Mitigation Project

In 2009, Teton County adopted the Energy Mitigation Program (EMP) to steer Teton County residents to offset the disproportionate energy consumption of large buildings in our community with a conservation or renewable energy installation on site. If the structure does not include efforts to offset energy consumption, then Teton County imposes a fee in lieu. Proposed amendments to the EMP fees policy would clear up ambiguous language in the program related to refunds. Proposed rule changes would clarify that a refund is a one-time payment at the time the Certificate of Occupancy is issued.​ The public comment period was opened on May 7, 2019 and will remain open for 45 calendar days.
