On Jan. 14 the Teton County Planning & Zoning Commission was scheduled to consider a conditional use permit for a 90-unit glamping resort at the mouth of Moose Creek Canyon, but that public hearing was postponed until Feb. 11 because of extreme winter conditions that shut down many valley roads and made travel unsafe.
The proposed location for Under Canvas Teton, a luxury campground that will be marketed to visitors of Grand Teton National Park, is a two-lot, 92-acre property on the corner of Old Jackson Highway and the gravel road leading to the Moose Creek trailhead. The property is zoned for agricultural and rural residential uses.
P&Z will now consider the application at its regular meeting on Feb. 11 at the county courthouse. The commission will have a packed agenda that Tuesday; Under Canvas is fifth on the list of items to be reviewed, with a public hearing scheduled for 6 p.m.
By the submission deadline, the county had received over 80 comments about the Under Canvas application, mostly in opposition. Citizens expressed their concerns which included neighborhood compatibility, impacts to wildlife and natural resources, increased traffic, wildfire hazards, and inadequate road infrastructure.
