JACKSON, Wyoming — Teton County commissioners have approved the final development plan for an affordable housing development for local teachers.
The development in Wilson will have 11 homes, each with three bedrooms and one-and-a-half bathrooms. The homes will cost no more than $422,500 each.
Housing in Jackson Hole is notoriously expensive. Local officials for years have struggled to find ways to provide affordable housing for essential workers such as police, teachers and firefighters.
The Jackson Hole News & Guide reports (http://bit.ly/1lU5Xuv ) the teacher housing development will be built on property belonging to the Teton County School District. Developers say they expect to begin work on the site next week.
