Do I have to bury the utilities on my property?

All utilities must be installed underground per LDR Section 7.7.5.

The only exemption to that standard is that an existing above-ground fuel tank may be replaced above ground ONLY if the property in question is outside of the Wildland Urban Interface (WUI). To determine if your property is within the WUI, you can reference the Teton County GIS Map server, which includes the Wildland Urban Interface layer under "Planning & Building Layers. Check with the Fire Department at (307)733-4732 as they may have additional requirements.
