Council Accepts $185K Grant For Parking Structure Renovation

Anthony Pollreisz, K2 Radio

At its regular Tuesday meeting, Casper City Council accepted an over $185,000 matching grant from the Wyoming Business Council that will be put toward the renovation of a downtown parking structure located between South Center and South Wolcott streets.

The city of Casper will chip in $250,000 in excess one-cent funds to cover the rest of the renovation, which includes graffiti-resistant white paint for the interior of the structure, new interior and exterior signage and several aesthetic improvements. A new public restroom will be constructed at the site as well.

Casper mayor Kenyne Schlager says she’s excited to see the changes.

“The key component to this is actually having bathrooms in the downtown area, and, for any of us that have spent time or have shopped downtown, that’s one thing that’s been missing.” Schlager said. “We’re hoping (these renovations) will help our downtown business owners and help our guests.”

City officials have sent out a request for proposal to Casper-based architects for the design of the new restroom. The city has also made a call for interior painting bids.
