Frequently Asked Questions
Welcome to the Teton County Planning Department FAQs
The first step to using this resource is to confirm if the property you are interested in is located in unincorporated Teton County, Wyoming. Teton County and the Town of Jackson are different jurisdictions with different regulations. If the property is within the Town of Jackson limits, then you can reference the Town Planning Department website for your questions.
If you are unsure, use this link to open the Teton County GIS mapping system. The orange lines indicate Town of Jackson city limits. You can use the Search bar to enter a street address or parcel identification number, or use the hand icon to navigate around the map and find your property. If you have confirmed that the property is within Teton County, WY and outside of Town limits, then these FAQs will apply.
