Laramie, Wy – Albany county planning officials will once again ask the public to provide input on how the county should grow. Last month, citizens were asked to share their views on growth. One of those helping develop the plan is Diana Hulme of the Ruckelshaus Institute. She says public comments shared a common thread. Hulme says people are worried about rising costs because of growth, the loss of open space and impacts on the environment. Citizens will now be asked to attend meetings to develop alternatives for future land use and development in the county. The first meeting will be January 20th at the Albany county public library.
