Joe Albright and Flat Creek Ranch- (horses, guide)

Joe Albright, co-owner of Flat Creek Ranch, has questioned the legality of selling the North Cache site. "If this keeps the supervisor's office and the Jackson Ranger District in the town of Jackson, this is a great first step," he said.

Flat Creek Ranch owner Joe Albright sent a letter Feb. 26 to Harv Forsgren, regional forester for the Forest Service's Intermountain Region, listing several potential problems with the proposed sale of the North Cache Street property, which is also the site of the Jackson Ranger District office.Albright has previously said the Forest Service neglected to conduct a National Environmental Policy Act analysis before deciding to sell the land. Regional Forest Service officials say they might sell the land, estimated to be worth between $35 million and $50 million, and move the forest supervisor's office to Alpine, Pinedale or Afton.One justification for the move is the high cost of housing for Forest Service employees who live in Jackson. Agencies such as Grand Teton National Park, the National Elk Refuge and the Wyoming Game and Fish Department, as well as many Jackson Hole residents, community leaders and nonprofits, have criticized the proposal.In his letter, Albright said regional Forest Service officials should consider land occupied by the Bridger-Teton National Forest supervisor's office and the Jackson Ranger District office as two separate administrative sites, not one parcel, in their proposal to Congress.The original November 2006 proposal to Congress specified the sale of 8 acres.In early February of this year, the Forest Service updated its proposal to Congress asking it to consider the sale of the entire 16 acres. "Omitted from your agency's explanation is the fact that your agency has decided to expand this ‘project' to include the sale of a second 8-acre ‘administrative site' in Jackson - the office of the Jackson Ranger District," Albright said in the letter."...It is clear that your agency has no authority to sell the Jackson Ranger District site before your agency has properly notified Congress ... of your intention to do so.Since your agency has not done so, you currently have no legal right to sell all 16 acres of Forest Service property in Jackson."In his letter, Albright also points out that, under the Forest Service Facilities Realignment and Enhancement Act of 2005, the law that allows the Forest Service to sell administrative sites, the regional office must state the anticipated revenue from the sale.In the original proposal to Congress, the regional office estimated $13 million from the sale.Albright says the regional office not only failed to include an updated estimate of anticipated revenue but would have a hard time arriving at such an estimate because of the Town of Jackson's zoning regulations, which would rezone the land as rural "as soon as it is conveyed to a private buyer by the Forest Service."The "rural" designation likely wouldn't allow a potential buyer to develop the land to the extent that an "urban commercial" zoning designation would, Albright said."The Congress of the United States has left you a stark choice," Albright said.

Joe Albright, co-owner of Flat Creek Ranch, challenged the legality of the agency's actions so far.Albright hired an environmental lawyer from Washington, D.C. to examine Forest Service documents released after a Federal of Information Act request.Their findings suggest that the agency has already decided to sell, he said.the Cache Street site and, in doing so, has failed to perform the environmental assessments required before a decision is made."You need to withdraw this decision, go through the [National Environmental Policy Act] process and re-notify Congress," he said.He expanded on that statement in a letter through his lawyer to regional forester Harv Forsgren, dated Feb. 7.

It was uncovered by Joe Albright, co-owner of Flat Creek Ranch and a critic of the agency's action so far. Forest Service officials are facing criticism for not informing the Jackson Hole community about their motives and reasons for the sale, and the latest news may fuel those flames.Jackson Hole residents also have criticized the agency for saying nobody had sought to buy the land when for years the Forest Service had actually been entertaining a sale request from a potential developer of an IMAX theater.The forest service is considering moving the forest headquarters to Alpine, Pinedale or another community.Albright said the agency's missteps should cause it to begin the process anew."This is terrible news for our community, but it is not the end of the story," Albright wrote in an e-mail about the increase in sale acreage.
