JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) - A tract of U.S. Forest Service land in downtown Jackson is once again under contract.

The Jackson Hole News & Guide reports (https://bit.ly/1kgDmS5 ) that Bridger-Teton National Forest announced Thursday that officials have accepted an offer for the 10-acre property.

Agency officials would not release more information about the deal, such as the identity of the buyer or the price.

In September a deal to sell the property for $12 million fell through, which is just the latest in a series of twists and turns that have followed the land sale since the property went on the market in 2013. The sale has had problems because of uncertainty over zoning the land.

The Jackson Town Council has targeted the land for housing and officials have rezoned the property for dense residential development.
