Wyoming city limits Town Square holiday displays to 14 days

Jackson has set a new limit for holiday displays on its Town Square to 14 days.

The Jackson Hole News And Guide reports that the 14-day limit was set after groups sought to set up unattended displays for weeks on end.

The limit applies to nativity scenes, menorahs, Santa-related things and anything else people might want to install to celebrate the holiday-rich season or just make a point to the crowds that will be on the square in coming weeks.

The new rules also limit the displays to the western side of Town Square. Officials decided not to have size limits or require placards saying who set up a display. But they concluded that the number of people who want to use the space required a time limit.
