Teton Links RV Park Conditional Use Permit

CLICK HERE to read our meeting report from the Feb 8, 2011 work meeting.

What’s happening? Robert & Sharman Wilson, of the current Teton Links Golf Course, are proposing an amendment to their Conditional Use Permit (CUP) to include a 108 site RV Park on approximately 420 acres at 1275 N and 4000 W in Driggs (this is 2-miles due west of Huntsman Springs, inside Woods Creek Fen.) This application is being represented by Bud Surles. The Teton County P&Z held a public work session (not hearing – no final decisions were made at this meeting) to review the Teton Links Concept Plan on Tuesday, February 8, 2011. The purpose of this work session was to take public comment and feedback on this proposal.

Want to learn more? Click here to view the Teton Links site plan, the applicant’s narrative, as well as all 14 of the agency and public comment letters that have been submitted to date. (The county now posts this information for free on their website – a great new public-friendly feature!)

 Here are maps of the Teton Links area (click for larger view):

Teton Links with river to the west  Teton Links with wildlife overlay  Teton Links with delineated wetlands

The first map shows the Teton Links on the east side of the road, and the Teton River on the west side of the road. Although it is not depicted on this map, immediately across the road from Teton Links are 4 contiguous conservation easements that run all the way to the river, spanning roughly a mile to the north and south. (We will post a map of these easements soon.) The middle map shows the Teton County wildlife overlay; all 8 habitat layers are present on these lands. The map on the right shows the delineated wetlands (which encumber almost all of the property) as mapped by the U.S. Department of Fish and Wildlife. Although it is not depicted on the wetlands map, please note that 100% of this property is also within the official 100-year flood plain as mapped by FEMA. The flood plain runs all the way east to the Driggs city limits, which is not too surprising considering that this property and the surrounding areas regularly flood in the spring. (All maps are courtesy of the Teton County GIS program – a great new free public service provided by the county!)

When are comments due? It is important that the public participate in these kinds of work sessions to provide feedback and comments. However, the deadline for written comments has passed.

Will you post more information? We will continue to post more information on this page as it is available. As of April 4, 2011, no further meetings have been scheduled, but we will keep you posted.
