Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo oooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!

There are too many other open places in Wyoming where building would be appreciated and wouldn't destroy the beautiful area around the Tetons!

And there are plenty of mountainous areas that could be developed without ruining the Teton area. And btw, developers also had a big hand in the housing "bubble" and crash. They're not seriously thinking about helping you out when they start developing properties...and they'll hire illegals instead of citizens when they can get by with it. We've already experienced that in Florida.

What the rich want, the rich get. Government officals have a long history of bowing to the almighty dollar.

Slowly land is being taken and sold for profit. Just look at Utah. If this land is sold what is to say that in 20 years more prime land will be bought closer to the Tetons. Next thing you know skyscrapers are put up to get the best views and a growing number of commercial property will mean more people and more people mean more water use more supplies will be needed to supply a growing population. If anything the park could buy and use some of the property to provide for visitor use area to help relieve some of the strain to the congested areas from Teton village to Yellowstone. Anyone who has visited either park in the summer can attest to this.
