45.8 acres of wild and scenic land on East Gros Ventre Butte with 360-degree views overlooking the Teton Range, National Elk Refuge, Gros Ventre Range and the Town of Jackson, WY. The parcel is located in the natural and scenic resource overlay, which aims to protect the wildlife and opens space in Teton County. The opportunity for a transfer of development rights exists to a non-contiguous parcel including placing this parcel into a conservation easement.
Three scenarios exist:
With a 2+/- acre building envelope in the northwest corner, private property owner would have a commanding view of Jackson Hole. The end-user could consider placing the other 43+/- acres into a conservation easement.
#2 Transfer of Development Rights
Current Teton County land development regulations allow for a density transfer of the development entitlements on the property to non-contiguous parcels for both residential and commercial use. The county’s goal is to protect the “high-value wildlife and scenic resources,” for which Lookout offers to the public. It is a corridor property into and out of the Town of Jackson, adjacent to the National Elk Refuge and considered a sensitive wildlife area for mule deer and sage grouse.
#3 Conservation Buyer
The adjacent parcels to the north are already in conversation easements. This is an opportunity to protect another 45.8 acres for its wildlife and scenic value.
