By  | 

CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Natrona County is one step closer to adopting a long range transportation plan.

Casper City Councilman Bob Hopkins, Ward I, speaks at a council work session in Casper, Wyo. on Tuesday, Nov. 12, 2019.

Casper Area Metropolitan Planning Organization officials briefed Casper City Council members on the plan’s latest details during Tuesday’s work session.

It will be a joint venture between Casper, Mills, Evansville, Bar Nunn and Natrona County.

It’s goal is to take a long-term look at the area’s transportation needs and serve as a guide in future planning decisions.

“When we do make those decisions as to where is the next neighborhood going to go or what’s the zoning going to be, where are bus routes going to end up, we need to refer back to this plan to see what is our long-term goal,” Casper Mayor Steve Freel, Ward III, said.

He also said while the plan is a guide for future decisions, it can change if circumstances require it.
