A new report commissioned by Teton County, ID with support from Teton County, WY and the Alta Solid Waste District was released last week; the report concludes that revenue from future development at Grand Targhee Resort will not outweigh the cost of impacts on Teton County, ID’s roads, transfer station, housing market, and emergency services.

In October of 2021, the Teton Board of County Commissioners approved a $49,500 contract with ECONorthwest, a finance and planning consultant, to perform a socioeconomic analysis of Grand Targhee’s approved plans for private land development and pending plans for expansion on public land. Teton County, WY commissioners agreed to pay for half of the study, and the Alta Solid Waste District kicked in $4,000.
