Downtown Rules Face Special Election

by Jackson Hole. Media

The downtown zoning rules passed earlier this month will go to a vote of the public on September 20th.

The Jackson Town Council certified a petition for referendum of District 2 rules for development and then voted to have a special election for voters to decide whether to uphold the board’s earlier decision.

Planning advocates at Save Historic Jackson Hole had objected to the inclusion of commercial square footage that could be used for short-term rentals when the council approved the ordinances.

The group gathered over 700 signatures that were verified by town officials.

The vote to schedule the election was unanimous.
