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.

Teton County Courthouse 

 

$2,000,000.00 for the purpose of planning, designing, engineering, site preparation, and preliminary construction costs for a new or renovated Teton County Courthouse. The funds may also be used for immediate security improvements to the existing Teton County Courthouse. This project is sponsored by Teton County.

From JH Votes Yes

Vote YES for security.

Teton County’s courthouse is more than fifty years old and has been called ‘unsafe’ and ‘unfit’ to meet community court, law enforcement and dispatch needs. The antiquated building and infrastructure make it extremely difficult to secure, susceptible to earthquakes and severe weather, and fail to provide adequate ADA access. Funding the planning, design, engineering, site preparation and preliminary construction costs to for a new or renovated Teton County Courthouse is critical to expanding the facility and supporting basic community functions.
