Cirrus Sky Trail Public Open House

The City of Laramie Parks and Recreation Department is holding a Public Open House on Thursday, February 25th from 6:00 to 7:30 PM at Laramie Fire Station #2, on the corner of Reynolds and 23rd Street.

The Cirrus Sky Trail planning and design team will present the latest developments in the Cirrus Sky Trail project, planned for the Cirrus Sky/ Coughlin Ridge on Laramie’s north side. The project will include a public art component.

Planning work and public meetings began in 2012-2013 for a bike and pedestrian trail to connect from 15th Street to 30th Street along the ridge. The Cirrus Sky Trail section is envisioned as part of a future public trail system encircling the entire City of Laramie. New design details include proposed layouts at the 15th Street, 22nd Street, and 30th Street trail connections, and options for public art proposed along the trail.

If you have ideas for the trail, please by all means bring them to the open house! Let the team know your perspective on the proposals being presented. City staff and consultant team members will be available to describe the proposals, answer any questions, and record comments and suggestions from the public.

The planning and environmental clearance phase is nearly complete and this will be the final public open house for the project. Engineering design work will begin in March, and construction will hopefully begin later this summer or fall. Barring unexpected delay, the project should be substantially complete in late 2016 or early 2017.

The Cirrus Sky Trail project is funded in part by a Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) grant from the US Federal Highway Administration and Wyoming Department of Transportation.

If you have questions about the Cirrus Sky Trail project, please feel free to contact the City of Laramie (email) Parks and Recreation Department at (307) 721-5269.
