This 1.08-acre property was purchased by Teton County in June 2020. On July 20, 2020 the Board of County Commissioners directed the Housing Department to work with Habitat for Humanity of the Greater Teton Area ("Teton Habitat") to develop the property. The Board also directed staff to work with stakeholders to develop an RFP for site design that includes greater connectivity to Mike Yokel Park, enhanced and safer access to the Cache Creek Ditch, and preservation of the historic Brown residence for future use as either a community center managed by Parks & Recreation or a housing unit.
On November 10, 2020 the RFP for Horizontal Infrastructure, Planning & Design was released. On January 5, 2021 the Housing Supply Board interviewed respondents and on January 19, 2021 the Board of County Commissioners directed staff to contract with Y2 Consultants for the work.
On January 19, 2021, the Board of County Commissioners signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Teton Habitat to develop the property.
Housing Department staff is currently working with Y2, Lower Valley Energy, Teton Habitat, Parks and Recreation, the Historic Preservation Board, and the Town of Jackson to refine the site design. Teton Habitat has also released an RFP for architectural services for the site.
