Buffalo's City Council, at their last meeting, approved Resolution No. 1374, authorizing an application for a business ready community grant to study the feasibility of developing city-owned properties near the Highway 16/I-90 interchange, near TW Road.
Councilman Dave Long questioned the size of lands that were suggested for the study, and Dave Simonsen, CEO of the Kaycee/Buffalo/Johnson County Economic Development Joint Powers Board (or JPB) explained why.
Simonsen said this feasibility study would focus somewhat on possible technology businesses in the area so would look into fiber optic availability and costs. The Business Council will also require the study to identify possible funding sources for development in the area.
The $25,000 grant would come from the Wyoming Business Council and require a local match of $8,333.
The council approved the grant application and agreed to pay the local match.
