Ordinance 473
Town of Jackson Ordinance 473 limits the amount of unrelated people living in a home to three. There are many examples of relationships that do not meet the parameters of this ordinance. For example, it is currently illegal for two couples to rent a two bedroom house or for four unrelated local workers to occupy a home together. Family structure can exist in a way that is not in line with the ordinance, and therefore we think that this ordinance should be repealed because it discriminates against the variety of households in the valley. This repeal would also free up more housing options for our community that are already very limited. Please tell your Town Councilors how you feel:

Join Us!
If you’re not already a member, please join our movement. We suggest a donation of $20 per year; however, we want our membership to be as accessible as possible, so please pay what you can. Members receive access to special meetings, vote on the Board of Directors, and help set the vision and trajectory for the organization. If you are already a member, please ask your friends and neighbors to join as well!

As always, I am here to answer any questions. Thanks for your steadfast support of ShelterJH!
