The Natrona County Commission has scheduled a public hearing about a preliminary plat for a light industrial subdivision near Bar Nunn, and a group of appointments to county-related boards at its meeting in the old courthouse at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday.

The commission will receive comments before voting whether to accept the preliminary plat for the 42-acre Salt Creek Industrial Park, according to the commission's agenda.

The proposed subdivision near Bar Nunn would consist of nine lots ranging in size from 2.5 acres to 7 acres, with access from Salt Creek Highway on the east, according to the county’s development department.

The county's Planning and Zoning Commission approved the preliminary plat last month.

County Development Director Jason Gutierrez said last month the preliminary plat presented by developer Keith Tyler met the requirements of the county’s development plan and zoning resolution, water and sewer infrastructure, topographical concerns such as the construction of an underground storm sewer system to handle runoff, emergency services and transportation, and consistency with surrounding development.

If the Natrona County Commission approves the preliminary plat Tyler will later return to the Planning and Zoning Commission with the proposal for the final plat.

The commission also will approve new, or renewed, appointments to county related boards. Those boards previously received applications from those prospective board members before submitting them to the commission.
