CASPER, Wyo. (PRESS RELEASE) - The Casper Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), in coordination with the Town of Evansville and the Wyoming Department of Transportation, will hold a public design charrette on Thursday evening June 24th from 5:00 to 8:00 pm.

The purpose of the charrette is to determine the potential location of a new public trail connecting Evansville to the Casper Rail Trail south of Yellowstone Highway (US-20/26). A charrette is a hands-on, design-based workshop intended to bring community members together with development professionals to explore options for a particular project or area.

Beginning at 5:00 pm, consultants from Western Research and Development will lead a presentation on the possible alignments, based on their research so far. For the remainder of the evening large scale aerial maps will be available for citizens, staff, and town officials to lay out preferred route(s).

The charrette will be held at Evansville Community Center, 71 Curtis Street, and citizens are welcome to drop in at any time. The slides will be shown continually throughout the evening and the mapping exercise is ongoing during the charrette.

“Public input is an extremely important aspect of MPO planning projects, and this charrette will allow interested citizens of Evansville and the surrounding community to have a say in where this trail may end up going.” said MPO Technician Renee Hardy.
