Fremont County to adopt similar development codes as Teton County's old ordinances
Does history repeat itself? It just might! Normally we do not report on land use issues in other counties, but Fremont County is our neighbor to the north and many landowners in Teton County own property there as well. The Fremont County Commissioners are holding a hearing to approve amendments to their subdivision ordinance which mirror the ordinance changes adopted by Teton County back in 2005 (which prompted our unprecedented, and expensive development boom-bust.) Namely, the ordinance allows for large density bonuses and reduced waterways setbacks in the farthest, most pristine regions of the county, including the areas close to Teton County such as Lamont, Drummond, Newdale, and Bitch Creek.
