*** CITIZENS UNITED ***
STOP THE COUNTY LAND GRAB

Free Teton Valley (FTV) was created to give a unified voice to all members of the Teton Valley, Idaho community to advocate for the rights and freedom of all valley citizens. This diverse group of members come from a variety of backgrounds and beliefs but are wholly united in their passion to protect individual property rights, and personal freedom. 


In 2020, when the Teton County Planning and Zoning Committee, the County Commissioners, and outside influencers (V.A.R.D.) attempted to underhandedly rush through a land use code with NO input from our community, FTV was formed, gained momentum, and together made our voices heard like never before. This slowed down the Land Use Code from being passed and forced the County to hold proper Public Hearings. This Land Use Code, if passed, will dramatically and negatively impact ALL Teton Valley citizens, and will strip our personal rights, property rights, and way of life, leaving the community we so love and cherish, unrecognizable.


Free Teton Valley has united all its citizens, from all walks of life, towards the common goal of protecting the Valley and our way of life and freedom. But our work has just begun. As we gain strength in numbers and more citizens join our efforts, we welcome anyone who lives in and loves this valley to join and support our common goal, so that together we can ensure that the actions taken by our local government truly reflect the will of the people of this great community.

Dear Members,

Since the Land Use Code was unjustly passed, we have been working the proper channels to have this code repealed. This is obviously an uphill battle, but a necessary process in the repeal of any code. The County Commissioners have violated several procedural and protocol standards by advertising a BOCC meeting for the approval of the Land Use Code when the Zoning Map, a key component to this Land Use Code, was rejected by the Planning and Zoning Committee. How can you approve a code that is reliant on a zoning map for enforcement that is not approved? What if the zoning map changes? What if it's never approved? You can't enforce a Land Use Code if you don't have a defined area of enforcement.

 

Make no mistake, what the County Commissioners did here is wrong. This is not how this process is supposed to work, especially when it can impact so many people. As we've stated time and time again, the Land Use Code should be on the ballot and voted on by the people and not some BOCC under pressure by a so-called non-profit.

We will keep you updated as we move along. 

More to come.
