County Commission Holds Public Hearings On Transferring Roads To Casper
The Natrona County Commission will conduct three public hearings about transferring three county roads to the City of Casper at its meeting at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday.
According to the agenda, the county and city entered an agreement on Sept. 2 about the future maintenance of roads that lie within or are next to the city limits.
The first of the three transfers is a group of roads: County Road 302, commonly known as Salt Creek Parkway, County Road 326, commonly known as English Avenue, and all the roads within the Salt Creek Heights Business Center Phase One.
The second transfer is County Road 501, commonly known as Wolf Creek Road.
The third transfer is County Road 508, commonly known as Country Club Road.
In a separate road-related matter, the commission will conduct a public hearing about extending County Road 119, also known as Six Mile Road, and making the extension a county road.
The commission also will have a public hearing about a transfer of nearly $71,000 in unanticipated revenues to the fairgrounds, and several county departments. The same public hearing includes transferring $203,000 to county departments for employee bonuses and benefits.
The final public hearing will be for the proposed approval of the Wildwood Major Subdivision east of Casper in the area of Tom Sawyer Road and Henrie Roadway.
On May 12, the Natrona County Planning and Zoning Commission by a 2-1 vote granted the request by John Stoysich and Lydia Christiansen to create a five-lot subdivision on 54 acres in an Urban Agriculture zoning district.
Two people, including Stoysich, spoke in favor of the subdivision. Four people spoke against it, with most of them concerned about road maintenance, according to minutes from the Planning and Zoning meeting.
