FREMONT COUNTY, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) -

A city council meeting in Lander tonight at the Lander Community Center allowed public input to be given on proposed zoning code changes.

A group of land owners and Lander citizens have several concerns, with one of them being that they have not had enough opportunity to voice their opinions. No one was willing to talk on camera before Wyoming News Now script deadline about the issues with the changes.

While the concerned citizens were uncomfortable speaking on record, we did reach out to the assistant mayor of Lander on the issue. In an interview she said the plan is well thought out and has been on the agenda since 2012.

“Our goal with these changes is to allow future construction to have the full range of housing opportunities, everything from a tiny home or living with an elder that you’re caring for, clear up to the five bedroom mansion,” stated Assistant Mayor RaJean Strube Fossen.

The last public input meeting was tonight at the Lander Community Center at 6 p.m. The vote is scheduled for next Tuesday night, also at the Lander Community Center.

Editor Note: This story has been edited to clarify that the concerned citizen’s were uncomfortable speaking on camera. The assistant mayor did respond to interview requests from Wyoming News Now.
