Town Zoning Update (outside the Downtown)

The Town is updating its zoning to achieve the community vision adopted in the 2012 Comprehensive Plan. Zoning is the set of regulations that determine the size, location, and use of buildings in Town. Character Districts 3 - 6 are mapped below and include most of Jackson’s residential areas, plus the highway commercial corridors west of downtown.

Updates

On June 27, Town Council approved 10 policy questions that will guide the update to Town Zoning.  

On June 1st, 2017, the community provided feedback on issues with Town Zoning at an Open House & Community Discussion and via an online survey. Click here for the summary of community comment.

Background

The current zoning in Character Districts 3 - 6 is almost 25 years old. The Comprehensive Plan has identified the following goals that are not currently being met:

 1 | Promote workforce housing opportunities by adding more residential housing in areas near downtown and the commercial corridors.
 2 | Reinvest in aging neighborhoods to both provide new workforce housing opportunities and also improve existing housing options.
3 | Protect the character of existing neighborhoods as new development and redevelopment occurs.
4 | Improve pedestrian access to commercial areas that are currently designed for access by vehicles.
5 | Improve the function and appearance of the highway commercial corridor.
