When replacing or repairing old fencing or if the fencing is related to an exempt agricultural operation, please call the Planning division for the specifics.
If your project is enclosing a pool, dog kennel, small yard, or something similar, check with the Planning division on “Special Purpose Fencing.” A special exemption may be granted depending on the purpose and design of your fence.
Partnership with Jackson Hole Wildlife Foundation
Teton County and the Jackson Hole Wildlife Foundation are partnering to help property owners comply with wildlife friendly fencing regulations to protect wildlife. As part of this collaboration, Jackson Hole Wildlife Foundation will assist the County on a campaign to remind property owners about the importance of wildlife movement corridors and the role of wildlife friendly fencing. The Jackson Hole Wildlife Foundation also has a dedicated group of experienced fence crews that volunteer to assist property owners with removal of non-compliant fencing or, in some case, modifying fences to become wildlife friendly. This program is completely voluntary for the property owner.
If you would like help complying with County regulations for an existing fence on your property, please contact the Jackson Hole Wildlife Foundation at (307) 739-0968, firstname.lastname@example.org or visit https://jhwildlife.org/.
