Wyoming - Jackson - Urban Planning

State: Wyoming
Description: The town of Jackson is the only incorporated city within the boundaries of Teton Range. It is a major gateway for millions of tourists visiting nearby Grand Teton National Park, Yellowstone National Park, and the National Elk Refuge and is also in proximity to several ski resorts. The community of Jackson is well rooted in the natural beauty and distinct character of Wyoming. As of the 2010 census, there were 9,577 people living in Jackson, an increase from 8,647 ten years prior. With keen sighted planning and demonstrated intention, Jackson city planners are doing important work to ensure that the urban development of this small town does not encroach upon the surrounding natural landscape that makes it such a popular destination.
