JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) - The town of Jackson is launching an effort to get residents to stop referring to a large landslide as the Budge Drive landslide and include other areas that are affected.

The slow-moving landslide is now being referred to in official documents as the West Broadway landslide as it continues to inch toward other areas of town.

Town Manager Bob McLaurin says it was called the Budge Drive landslide because it initially damaged homes and roads on Budge Drive. He says it now has wider implications.

According to the Jackson Hole News and Guide (https://tinyurl.com/zqwh3rz ), the rebranding effort was launched as officials decide whether to ask voters to pay to shore up the landslide. They want to emphasize that it is a community problem and not limited to one neighborhood.
