Teton County Issues Request for Proposals for Land Development Code Revision Services

Request for Proposals - Land Development Code Revision – Teton County, Idaho

Driggs, Idaho

Teton County, Idaho is soliciting proposals from planning firms/teams regarding revision of Teton County’s Land Development Code (LDC). The code directs all aspects of land use in Teton County, including subdivision and zoning regulations. The process will include an audit of current LDC in relation to the County’s Comprehensive Plan to identify what revisions are necessary for implementation of the comprehensive plan; development of a draft revised LDC, public participation process, and adoption of the final LDC by the Teton County Board of County Commissioners.

Teton County Description

Teton County, Idaho is located on the eastern border of Idaho, on the western slope of the Teton Mountain Range. While Teton County is one of the smaller counties in Idaho geographically, it is one of the most scenic and fastest growing. The Teton Valley is home to lush pastures and farms, as well as the foothills leading to picturesque mountains. Teton County enjoys a rural, agricultural heritage, world class views, outdoor recreation opportunities, and outdoors lifestyles, that appeal to a growing and diverse population. Growth in Teton County can be attributed to a location and lifestyle that is attractive for second homes, retirees, outdoor enthusiasts, and the agricultural industry, in addition to serving somewhat as a bedroom community to the nearby Jackson Hole, Wyoming area.

Project Purpose

Teton County’s land development code was developed in the early 1990s, with subsequent amendments since that time. A new Comprehensive Plan was adopted in 2012. The LDC has not been brought into alignment with the goals and objectives of the 2012 Compressive Plan. The purpose of this project is to bring the land development code into alignment with the goals and objectives of the 2012 Comprehensive Plan.
