City Council Consider Zoning Changes That Encourage Development
Casper has been implementing a land use plan that allows for greater flexibility in development, and the city council today will consider two requests for zoning changes to further that goal, according to its agenda.
At its meeting beginning at city hall at 6 p.m., the council will conduct a public hearing to consider Mountain View Builders, Inc.'s request to construct a warehouse and multi-family apartments on the lot at 335 N. Grant St.,
That requires changing the zoning to Central Business from Limited Industrial, which does not allow for residential uses.
The other public hearing is to consider C&G Investments, LLC's request to build a four-unit, multi-family structure on the vacant lot at 1231 N. Wolcott St.
That requires changing the zoning from Manufactured Home (Mobile) Park to One to Four Unit Residential zoning.
Both zoning changes conform to the city's Comprehensive Land Use Plan, according to the memo from City Manager John Patterson about the zoning change requests. "The Plan was created in 2000 and was based on approximately two years of citizen meetings and visioning intended to create a set of goals and policies regarding land use in the Casper area."
The council also is set to approve five amendments to city ordinances about public intoxication, trespassing, driver's licenses, and seat belts and child restraints in cars.
Council also is scheduled to approve the annexation of roads that the Natrona County Commission is set to transfer at its meeting at 5:30 p.m.
