Buffalo Planner's report to City Council

Buffalo City Planning Director Lynn Barrett gave her report to the city council at their last meeting, touching on Richardson Park, a water request and the Wyoming Water Development Commission among other topics.

Barrett said the USDA Grant application for the study into the possibility of bringing city water to the Richardson Park Subdivision has been submitted, although they have requested more information which she has provided. So far she has heard nothing else from them.

She has contacted all city departments and many other organizations asking for their Capital Improvements Plan (CIP) and has begun to compile those lists to get to the council later this spring.

A landowner in the Dube Minor Subdivision in the county west of Buffalo along Highway 16 has requested consideration for access to city water to their property. It will be reviewed at the next Planning and Zoning Commission meeting.

Barrett said the Northeast Wyoming Economic Summit was a successs, with Councilmen Russ Humphrey and Wes Haskins attending. She said it appeared to be a good kickoff to the Tri-Cities Marketing Group that encompasses Buffalo, Sheridan and Gillette.

Barrett then explained a problem with a local business' plans for expansion.

Habitat wants to build the distribution center behind their existing store, and will come before the P&Z Commission in May with their request. If all goes well they hope to build this summer, she said.
