Opportunity to Comment on Future Development of Laramie Tuesday
October 30, 2009 — UW faculty and staff members have an opportunity to share ideas that
will be helpful in determining future challenges and opportunities to
promote the social, economic and environmental development of Laramie
with minimal costs to the community.
The Wyoming Rural Development Council's Community Assessment team will hear comments from UW and other educational institutions Tuesday, Nov. 3, from 5-6 p.m. at the Wyoming Technology Business, Center 1968 Harney Street.
The Assessment Resource Team will focus on three basic questions:
-- What are the major problems/challenges in your community?
-- What are the major strengths/assets of your community?
-- What projects would you like to see implemented in the next 2, 5, 10
or 20 years in your community?
"It is important that the education sector has a voice in the assessment," says Gaye Stockman, president and CEO of the Laramie Economic Development Corporation. "Please come out and help us share the importance of education to Laramie."
The final report will include recommendations from each team member based on the needs of the community. It will include suggestions to accomplish the identified initiatives, and sources of income and potential contacts will be included with each recommendation.
