Buffalo Planning Director Lynn Barrett, in her report to the city council at their last meeting, said Jennifer Haskins of the Buffalo Downtown Association had notified her that the project to protect the mural on Margo's Pottery building had been approved for a grant from the Wyoming Main Street Program through the Wyoming Business Council.
We will have a more in-depth look at the grant and project later this week.
Barrett also reported that she has met a number of times with the current owner of the Bison Meadows Subdivision about his options for the lands.
She said landowner Neil Schiche brought in a compliance plat and application and the Development Review Committee and city officials toured his property. They deemed his sketch plan as “sufficient” to allow him to go before the Planning Commission this month.
The condominium plat for the Idlewild Hotel was approved by the Planning and Zoning Commission with a few minor variances. It will come before the city council at a future meeting.
