Laramie Area Growth Plan Update

Since May 2022, the City of Laramie and Albany County have been working to develop the Laramie Area Growth Plan. This Joint Growth Area Plan includes the development of cooperative regulations for the County and City in order to help define responsible growth in the rural-urban interface.

The final draft of the Laramie Area Growth Plan is scheduled to be presented at a joint work session between the City’s Planning Commission and Albany County’s Planning and Zoning Commission on January 30, 2023 at 5PM. Open houses on the final draft will also be held at the following times:

  • February 23, 2023 11:30AM-1:30PM Laramie Rec Center Conference Room
  • February 23, 2023 5:00PM-7:00PM Albany County Public Library

The Plan will set the stage for the Intergovernmental Agreement and Regulations set forth for the Laramie Growth Area which will be adopted a later date. The IGA will serve as a guiding document intended to solidify the policy direction developed through the process of creating the Plan. 

The purpose of the Growth Plan is to address the increased pressure of rural-urban growth surrounding Laramie. The City of Laramie understands the importance of growth for a thriving community and that clear growth policies and standards must be in place to ensure both legal and thoughtful development occurs. Growth policies like those developed in the Growth Plan promote and preserve future development and provide a clear guide for years to come.
