The Housing Department is working on two new partnership projects, detailed below.
445 East Kelly Avenue ("Brown Property")
This 1-acre property was purchased by Teton County in June 2020. On July 20, 2020 the Board of County Commissioners directed the Housing Department to work with Teton Habitat to develop the property. The Board also directed staff to work with stakeholders to develop an RFP for site design that includes greater connectivity to Mike Yokel Park, enhanced and safer access to the Cache Creek Ditch, and preservation of the historic Brown residence for future use as either a community center managed by Parks & Recreation or a housing unit.
Jackson & Kelly
This project is a partnership between Teton County and a local family. The development will be built on 10 lots located south of Snake River Brewing. Staff is currently working with the family to create massing models for the property and to identify potential funding sources for the project, which will ultimately result in housing for households earning 20-200% of median family income. Staff anticipates beginning the official planning process for the development sometime in late 2020.
