Hearing set on development

Mar 29, 2013 - The Associated Press

JACKSON -- Critics are mobilizing to oppose a planned subdivision that developers are proposing along a scenic river in far western Wyoming.

Developer Dan Schwab is proposing a 29-home subdivision on 73 acres along the Greys River. The site is about 25 miles southeast of Alpine, an inholding surrounded by the Bridger-Teton National Forest.

Schwab also is proposing to improve an existing air strip, build a store and up to a dozen rental cabins or RV pads at the site.

Critics say the plan is fundamentally inconsistent with the landscape.

The Lincoln County Commission plans a hearing on the proposal April 24 in Cokeville. Jonathan Teichert is Lincoln County's senior planner. He says the county is accepting public comments on the proposal.
