Albany County and the City of Laramie are working to develop the Laramie Area Growth Plan -- a Joint Growth Area Plan which will include the development of joint or cooperative regulations for the County and the City in order to help define responsible growth in the rural-urban interface.

Growth Area Map
This Map is intended to give an idea of the rural/urban interface surrounding the City of Laramie.
The County and City are seeing an increase of growth pressure in the rural-urban interface. While growth is beneficial and is needed to continue to thrive, good growth policies and standards are needed to ensure logical and thoughtful development occurs. The City and County have a strong desire to ensure growth policies that will both promote and preserve the ability for future development and guide development in a manner that will ensure logical and thoughtful development for years to come.
The timeline is quick on this project! Please see project milestones below.
