Employee Generation Study Completed
Published June 30, 2023
Economic & Planning Systems delivered the completed Employee Generation Study to the Housing Authority this June. The study, funded by Teton County, Idaho, calculates the additional workforce housing demand created by new market residential and non-residential development. This will support local efforts to understand better and address the workforce housing shortage.
The Land Use and Employee Generation Study documents current links between the construction of new commercial and residential development, the employees generated or induced by the development, and those employees’ need for housing. The information may be used by the local jurisdictions in Teton County, Idaho to inform incentive standards and support annexation and entitlement negotiations and other discretionary planning decisions where the impacts of new development on affordable housing may be mitigated. The study will also inform developers on the need for affordable workforce housing to serve their proposed development and encourage inclusion of such housing in their plans.
