The Rendezvous Lands Conservancy would like to say THANK YOU to the Jackson Hole community for helping us with our plans to turn a gravel mining operation into natural, public access park land at the Snake River/WY-22 Bridge!
What you did:
Attended meetings, filled out surveys, left comments on our website and contacted us directly
What we heard:
“This is an incredible gift to the community and I would like to express appreciation to all involved in purchasing this land and now planning for its use. The opportunity for the public to provide input to the design is also a thoughtful component to this gift.”
“Keep things real.” More natural than man-made, focused on trails. Limited parking, some benches and restrooms.
“Balance the uses.” Opportunities to walk, hike, run and enjoy the river and ponds. Family friendly. No commercial uses. Consider dogs (and their keepers) carefully.
“Enhance habitat.” Keep and enhance existing wildlife habitat, and reclaim the gravel-disturbed areas. Consider seasonal closures or limiting access for dogs to benefit wildlife.
With a lot of hard work -and your input and support – the park construction could begin this fall. As our team finalizes a draft plan, we will share it with the community through our website and a June 20th presentation at Solstice at the Park.
Questions? Join us for bi-weekly Q and A’s, Tuesday afternoons from 3 to 4 pm at 1110 Maple Way, 2nd Floor, starting on June 19th – or contact us.
