In her latest report to the city council, Buffalo's Planning Director, Lynn Barrett, said the Lobban Street Grant application deadline is approaching, and explained what will be happening with the Lobban Street Project.
Mayor Randy Dyess said there is nothing to actually look at yet, as far as plans go. The grant application, if approved, will then result in public meetings to gather ideas, then specific plans will be drawn for the council's approval.
Barrett also reported that C Bar K Petroleum Services has been awarded a contract through the State of Wyoming to re-mediate possible contaminated sub-surface water. They will be closing a number of monitoring wells and open others, she said.
Landowner Neil Schicke has applied for a compliance plat for his property in the unplatted portion of the Mountain View Addition in Buffalo. His sketch plan was approved by the Development Review Committee and the application will now go before the Planning and Zoning Commission at their meeting Tuesday afternoon.
Barrett said she met with Mr. Jepson, the owner of the Bison Meadows Subdivision east of the South Bypass Road and north of the high school. He said he has contacted developers in Gillette to see if they were interested in helping to develop the land. If not, he will be looking into vacating part of the plat.
She also reported she had sent a letter to a resident informing him of the city ordinance against having a salvage yard in a residential district.
There was no Vision Buffalo Commission meeting in July. They will pick up their meeting schedule in August.
