Master Plan Ad Hoc Advisory Committee

Parks and Recreation Master Plan
Originally, a thirty day public comment period was opened for the Draft Master Plan, March 5 - April 3, 2015. The Ad Hoc Committee met on April 8, 2015 to consider the results of the public comment period. After making amendments, the Ad Hoc Committee recommended that the Master Plan move forward in the approval and adoption process.  

Following multiple meetings in the approval and adoption process, governing bodies recommended that additional changes be made and the plan was remanded back to the Master Plan Ad Hoc Advisory Committee for consideration of those changes.  On September 30, 2015 the Master Plan Ad Hoc Advisory Committee considered the changes as recommended and ultimately approved a revised master plan based upon those recommendations changes and recommended the plan start the approval and adoption process over again.    

A new thirty day public comment period is now open for the Draft Master Plan, starting January 15, 2016.  A timeline of the approval process will be posted here once it has been finalized.

All meetings are held at the Recreation Center, 920 Boulder Drive, in the large conference room and are open to the public. The Recreation Center is wheelchair accessible and accessible parking spaces are available. Requests for special accommodations or interpretive services must be made 24 hours prior to this meeting. Please contact 721-3572, for further information.  

Proposed Parks and Trails
Public meetings were conducted to inform citizens of the Committee's work on developing a Master Plan and to solicit feedback. Click here to view the power point of the presentation given at these public meetings. The presentation provides a brief overview of the Committee's work so far. Maps showing the proposed parks and recreation facilities were also presented at the public meetings, and citizens provided comments on the proposals and noted any other facilities or features they would like to see incorporated in the Master Plan. Please note the maps show conceptual, future park and trail lands which are denoted as such on the legend. These conceptual areas are draft locations only and are part of a long range plan for parks and recreation services in our community; as such these conceptual areas and amenities are largely on private property and are therefore clearly not available to the public. Again, there is no public access allowed at any  conceptual sites listed at the maps, doing so is trespassing on private property and violators can be subject to prosecution.
Please note the maps below are previous drafts, to view the current status of all maps please refer to the draft Parks & Recreation Master Plan which is linked above.

Survey of Community Residents
The Ad Hoc Committee enlisted the Wyoming Survey and Analysis Center to conduct a survey covering the topics of parks, trails, recreation and open space areas. This survey was scientifically conducted with the survey sample including Laramie residents living up to one mile past the City limits. Respondents were asked a variety of questions on Parks and Recreation usage and on what amenities they would like to see in the future. To view the results report please click here.
