Star Valley Council Discuss Future Of Town Center


The Star Valley Town Council tonight, Tuesday, will discuss how to attract visitors to the area, as well as setting goals on what the town would like its town center to become.

The town center commercial development plan would encompass industrial commercial zoned land and involve the businesses that are already on Highway 260.

Those businesses include the Circle K, Pete's Place and Lumbermen's, all on Highway 260.

"What they are attempting to do is make sure it grows in the right direction," Sloan said. "They are trying to plan for the future."

The council in its work session will also talk about the Loop corridor bypass between highways 87 and 260 as well as discuss a possible resolution in support of the proposed bypass. The bypass would begin south of the Mazatzal Casino on Highway 87 and exit east of Star Valley on Highway 260. The proposed bypass is still decades away at an estimated cost of $200 million.

The Star Valley Town Council meets at 5 p.m. for a work study session and at 6 p.m. for the regular meeting, Tuesday, Aug. 15 in the Star Valley Baptist Church on Highway 260.
