The Natrona County Development Department has completed the initial review of the Natrona County Natural Resource Plan and has it available for public review.
Natrona County Development Department has hired a consultant to update its 2016 Development Plan with a Natural Resource Plan (revision of Chapter 7). The most recent Development Plan for Natrona County was adopted in 2016 and is intended to be a living document with review every five years and updated every twenty (20), or as need to reflect changing conditions and values. The consultant has reviewed and provided a report of the existing Development Plan adopted in 2016, Chapter 7 specific, and the primary changes that are necessary. The objective of this process is to update the Development Plan by re-evaluating the existing Federal and State Land Use Policy (Chapter 7) and providing updates as needed to comply with W.S. 9-4-218, as amended by House Bill 54. The purpose of the update is to provide a reliable planning resource to guide the Citizens, Development Department, and Governing Body in the future decisions on land use, development and infrastructure investment.
