Forest Office To Be Built This Summer

by Jackson Hole. Media

FSO SketchBridger-Teton National Forest has announced its tentative schedule for rebuilding the Forest Supervisor’s Office in north Jackson. Forest Spokesperson Mary Cernicek says the buyer of the segment of forest property adjacent the Supervisor’s office is to close on the deal at the end of March, and employees will begin relocating their offices, most likely to other buildings nearby. Then sometime in early summer, Cernicek says the familiar A-frame building and the adjacent log cabin will be removed and construction of the main office building along Cache Street will begin. While plans for the auxiliary buildings are still not complete, the design and architectural drawings of the main office Building are. The current Forest Supervisor’s Office was originally built in the early 1960s and faces a variety of significant structural and mechanical deficiencies. The other buildings are to include a new 4-unit flexible housing unit for permanent and seasonal employees, renovation of the existing district office into seasonal housing, and a variety of fire and support facilities.
