Housing Department Rules & Regulations
The Housing Department updates the Housing Department Rules and Regulations annually. The 2020 updated version is now undergoing a 45-day Public Comment Period prior to adoption by the Board of County Commissioners. The Town has a different process. The Rules and Regulations are a Town Ordinance and must go through three readings before the Town Council can adopt the Ordinance. Public Comment can be given at the Town Council meetings or through email. Public comment to the County Commissioners can be given at any of their regular meetings or through email.
Changes to the document include clarifications, formatting, correction of scrivener's errors, and one policy change. The policy change is to the rule concerning Defaults. Homeowners who have had 3 notices of Default will be forced to sell their home upon the 4th Default.

Former Rules & Regulations
The 2015 Housing Action Plan directed Housing Department staff to update the Housing Rules and Regulations. After a 16-month public engagement process, the Jackson Town Council and the Teton County Board of County Commissioners adopted the new updated Housing Regulations on July 2, 2018. The rules went into effect July 4, 2018.
Public Engagement Process
The Housing Department and the Town and County Planning Departments held five public engagement events from May of 2017 through October of 2017. These engagement meetings were conducted in both Spanish and English in order to get feedback from the community. Staff also held six sessions of office hours to discuss the Rules and Regulations and answer questions. In total, there were 297 individuals engaged in these meetings and office visits. Staff utilized newspaper advertisements, social media campaigns, email campaigns, and educational presentations to various non-profit organizations and advocacy groups to further gain input from the community. Additionally, two surveys addressing the topic of housing rules and regulations were administered to the public. These surveys yielded 325 responses from community members. The public also had the opportunity to provide public comment at six public meetings with the Town Council, County Commissioners, and Housing Authority Board.
