Teton County, Wyoming has an Affordable Workforce Housing Standards and a Checklist. These standards have as their goal the sustained integration of the workforce into the communities in which they work. People will live in the communities in which they work rather than having to commute to the communities in which they work. As such, the standards require that development which creates growth in number of employees is only allowed with a commensurate growth in the availability of housing in which those employees will live.
