One of the zoning restrictions enacted was that population density in Bridger Canyon was capped at one home for every 40 acres. Throughout the years, and the challenges, the Bridger Canyon zoning district continues to preserve the exquisite beauty and value of Bridger Canyon. Learn more about Bridger Canyon Zoning.
