    Both. Norton is also hoping to spend part of the $13 million on programs intended to support the valley’s lower income residents. One of those is a first/last/deposit program to help people get into a rental. Another is a so-called “family stabilization” pilot intended to help households with school-aged children experiencing homelessness find affordable rental housing. But the community won’t see the benefits of the $13 million investment immediately. Building housing takes time and, aside from the first/last/deposit programs and a proposed expansion of the housing

    WY has the second highest suicide rate in the U.S. A good friend of mine died recently. No cause of death listed. That's where I went. I don't Mondays is about a school shooting.

    probably David, but I was more of a Boomtown Rats fan. Unfortunately, this is still appropriate to our times.

    A friend of mine is trying that. He has land in CO and wants to build yurts on it. The HOA has a covenant that it has to a stick built house. He needs 6 of the 10 home owners to agree to his yurts.

    It's much more complicated than that. Maybe this is the solution. Next year's budget for affordable housing is $13mil. There is currently a program to get locals to sell to locals. https://www.jhnewsandguide.com/the_hole_scroll/jackson-hole-household-gets-public-funds-for-restricting-home-resale-to-locals/article_ca35f1c2-ebd0-56a5-ac85-f22722703223.html

    Affordables are part of the program here. The waiting list was five years, it's probably longer now.

    This won't crash like 2008 because there is no debt. Most sales are cash. I was talking to a real estate agent and he said every time he sees a high offer, he thinks the bank will never approve it and then the offer is cash so no need for a bank. We have a few unique factors at play here. We cannot build our way out of this. 97% of the land in the county is owned by the U.S. Gov't.(NP, NF, Wildlife refuge). We have the highest income inequality in the country. #1 and nobody else is even close. We have no state income tax. People buy homes here to hide their money. They don't live in the

    There is not much BLM land around here. NF allows camping, but you can only stay 14 days I believe. Traffic in Curtis Canyon has it's own rush hour.

    You hit the nail on the head Mick. Teachers, police, hospital staff all have trouble finding housing. Many employers offer employee housing. The ski resort has many buildings that are shared apts. The airport offers $500/month housing subsidies to TSA staff. The park and forest service have employee housing. Commuting here is a big challenge. The closest towns are 30-50 miles away. On paper that sounds okay until you realize one town is on the other side of the pass that can close for multiple days in a row during the winter. To the south, the canyon can close as well because of avalanch

    When? I need a timeline so I can buy a place to live. I was thinking winter would scare these people away. Maybe it will after a couple of years. I guess it's easier to deal with a cold winter when you can hop in your private jet and fly to Cabo whenever you want.

    Rent is insane here. I have four co-workers looking for housing. We can't hire because the rents are too high for people to move here. My place is rent controlled so I am safe at the moment. Currently available for rent. $20,000/mo 3 bd3 ba 2,200 sqft As many community members are experiencing first-hand, rental rates are on the rise in Teton County, as well as the surrounding areas, as demand for rentals continues to increase. The Housing Department found that between quarter four of 2019 and quarter four of 2020, rental rates in Teton County increased 9% for a two-bedroom apa
  16. This little gem is just up the road from me.
  17. Covid pushed people from big cities to small towns in states like MT and WY. Will these people stay or will they wake up one day say why do we live in MT and move back to where they came from?

    I listened to this recently. It's good. https://www.npr.org/2021/03/15/977533022/please-sell-me-a-home Just read this. One problem here is the rich buying up homes, tearing them down and building a little mansion then living in it for a couple of months a year. The waiting list for an affordable is many years. https://buckrail.com/housing-in-jackson-teton-county-by-the-numbers/ Norton also shared examples of how real estate prices have also increased significantly in the past few decades. She used a single-family home in Cottonwood park as an example. The three-bedroom, two
