MPO, City Holding Long-Range Transportation Plan Forums Throughout Area

Anthony Pollreisz, K2 Radio

City of Casper and Metropolitan Planning Organization officials will hold a series of public forums this weekend to discuss the development of a 25-year long-range transportation plan for the area.

Both groups are aiming to gather insight and address concerns from residents throughout the Casper metropolitan area of Casper, Mills, Evansville and Bar Nunn.

City of Casper community development director Liz Becher says, at this stage, public input is critical.

“We do not have preconceived visions,” Becher said. “Not only are we wanting to talk to residents to see what they feel, we want to know what our cyclists want to see, and we want to hear from our business community.”

Meetings will be held throughout the metropolitan area between 1:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. on Friday. Additional meetings will be held between 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. on Saturday.

On Friday, the group will hold its first forum at the Casper Senior Center, 1831 E. 4th St., between 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. The group will then hold a forum at Casper Recreation Center, 1801 E. 4th St., between 3:00 p.m. and 4:45 p.m.

The group will then travel to Bar Nunn to hold a forum at the town’s council chambers, 4820 N. Wardwell Industrial Ave., from 5:15 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. The group will wrap up its Friday at the Natrona County Fairgrounds, 1700 Fairgrounds Rd., for a forum from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

The first forum on Saturday will be held at the Wal-Mart on Casper’s west side, 4255 CY Ave., from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. The group will then travel to the Eastridge Mall, 601 S.E. Wyoming Blvd, for a final forum that will be held from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
