Thursday, May 31, 2018, Jackson, WY – The Jackson/Teton County Affordable Housing Department released its Annual Report today, highlighting new services and resources, as well as information and statistics related to housing compliance, current affordable housing stock, projects under construction, and upcoming initiatives.
As part of the Department’s on-going efforts to effectively address affordable housing needs, the Annual Report provides an in-depth look into the challenges facing Teton County’s workforce as it relates to housing. In addition, the report highlights feedback from last year’s community survey and subsequent actions taken by the Department based on this input.
“We are always looking for ways to better serve the community,” said April Norton, Affordable Housing Department Director. “It is critical for our Department to consistently engage with the public to ensure that the work we do reflects the real needs of our community.”
Other highlights of the report include a summary of proposed changes to the Housing Rules and Regulations as part of the Engage 2017 process, updates on projects and partnerships, featured stories from new homeowners, and major items from the Department’s 2018/2019 work plan.
“We are excited about the progress being made to provide more workforce housing for our community and we recognize there is still more work to be done,” Norton continued. “We invite residents to engage with us on these efforts. It will take all of us to sustain our goal of being a community first, resort second.”
