Laramie County Rule Change to Be Considered Tomorrow

Refer to item 03 on the meeting agenda, a public hearing for a proposed amendment to the Laramie County Land Use Regulations for Concentrated Feeding Operations.

The change would reduce the minimum distance from large-scale feedlots to occupied dwellings from three miles to one mile, effectively silencing the voices of some residents near the proposed ‘adoption center’ for wild horses.

An executive summary of the amendment appears at the beginning of a memorandum to the planning commission from department staff.

Arguments in favor of the change, written by the developer of the facility, appear in Appendix C (page 15).

Opposing arguments, from nearby residents, are presented in Appendix D (page 19).
