Talking Traffic

The Teton County Republican Party recently took an informal survey of community priorities. Over 160 Teton County residents responded and shared with us their thoughts on a number of important issues facing our community, state and nation. From housing and traffic in Teton County, to addressing Wyoming's unprecedented funding deficit in Cheyenne, you shared your ideas and priorities with us. .

When asked what you believed were some of the solutions that could help address our traffic challenges, improving our limited road network and widening roads received the most support.

Survey participants were asked to choose the following options that they thought could help address traffic in Teton County. The top vote-getters were:

  1. Improving our limited road network: 79.7% supported

  2. Widening roads: 58.7% supported

  3. Creating paid parking areas downtown: 22.5% supported

  4. Improving & expanding public transit, including START bus: 20.3% supported

  5. Establishing carpool lanes: 7.9% supported

  6. Expanding pathways: 7.9% supported

Other ideas that were mentioned included establishing dedicated bus lanes, creating roundabouts and building more connecting roads, including Tribal Trails. .

Please remember, this is not a scientific poll, but, instead, a chance to gain insight into some of the perspectives and priorities of our fellow community members.

Engage 2017 is a Town and County Planning initiative to get public feedback on updates to workforce housing, natural resource, parking and Town character regulations. These updates are part of a large-scale effort to implement the 2012 Comprehensive Plan.

There is currently a Town Zoning & Parking Survey residents are encouraged to take. The survey can be found
here. Make your voice heard by participating!.

As the town and county work to update and implement these regulations, they are asking for your input. Be sure to get involved and follow this public process online at engage2017.jacksontetonplan.com.
