Planning Department Website Update for May 10, 2022

As directed by the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention and leadership, the Town of Jackson is continuing to implement social distancing practices to minimize health risks to our community in regards to the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes modifications to the process for the submittal and review of development applications.  In addition, the procedures for public meetings, such as for the Planning Commission and Design Review Committee (DRC), will also be modified. See below for more details.

To Contact Planning Staff:  Please call 307-733-0440

To Meet with Staff: In-person meetings with staff are still on hold. Any meeting that cannot be handled through a telephone conference call (e.g., preapplication meeting), may be conducted through various virtual meeting formats (e.g., Facetime, Webex, etc.).

Public Meetings: Public meetings for the Town Council, Planning Commission, and DRC will continue on regular schedules. However, due to the need to avoid concentrating people, the Town will continue to implement procedural changes intended not only to meet due process legal requirements but to protect public health. These changes include the use of virtual meetings through Zoom and other methods to facilitate remote public comment and decision-maker consideration. Please check agendas for Zoom meeting information. 

Payments: Please call 307-733-0440 x1304 for development permit payments via credit card (Visa, MasterCard, or Discover).

Delivery of Non-digital Material: The Town Hall is open and you can make an appointment to deliver non-digital DRC materials by calling 307-733-0440 x1304.

Submitting a development application: Submitting an application for any type of development permit is the same as normal with the following changes and notes:

  • Application must be in all-digital format: Both application form and required materials (and addendums) must be all-digital and emailed to the Planning Department
  • All physical development (height, setbacks, parking, etc.) must be clearly measured and scaled to allow LDR compliance verification.
  • All applications will be reviewed within the requirements of the Land Development Regulations (LDRs), however, expect that applications will likely be completed closer to the maximum deadline than is typical.

We are continuing to make changes to our office protocol.  We appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding as we work to maintain the health of our community and provide responsive service. Please feel free to call or contact the Planning Department with any questions or concerns. We have a list of our employee contacts on the Planning Department website.
