VARD is an ESSENTIAL organization in Teton Valley. Our community has a history of unplanned, short-sited development patterns. As a result we are facing serious pitfalls in wildlife corridors, zombie subdivisions w/ thousands of empty lots and houses, lack of pathways, lack of density, and risks to our future wilderness-based tourist industry that fuels our economy. VARD works as a tireless watchdog to educate people on Smart Growth principles and to ensure that our county's leaders are helping regulate future planning.
