JH Votes Yes

A group of community members has recently formed a PAC, ‘Jackson Hole Votes YES!’ to advocate for keeping the community in Jackson Hole -- building the town and county we as locals want to live, work and raise our families in – by supporting the full slate of projects proposed on the 2019 SPET ballot.

Each item on the SPET ballot directly supports important items the Jackson community has repeatedly said they value – safety, health, environmental sustainability, housing and wildlife. 

 

PAC Chairs include Joni Upsher, Lauren Dickey and Mike Welch, who see this as an opportunity to educate voters and encourage them to support community values in November.

From JH Votes Yes

Vote YES for kids.

Gregory Lane is a critical community corridor, providing passage for our students to school as well as numerous businesses and families. Ensuring a street with complete sidewalks, adequate room for traffic and reliable water, sewer and stormwater is essential for the safety of students Kindergarten through High School and for maintaining a livable, walkable community.  

 

Gregory Lane will also serve to protect Flat Creek, an important water system in our community. Flat Creek is currently labeled as an “impaired” waterway; however, a new water filtration system under Gregory Lane will serve to filter sediment from water runoff before it reaches Flat Creek.
