LRCD Takes on Another Big Community Improvement Project

At a special meeting of the LRCD Board of Supervisors on December 6, 2011 the board voted to exercise an option-to-buy on the 4.6 acre, former Midwest/Standard refinery property at 971 N. Cedar St. on Laramie’s west side.  This property has been an eyesore and dangerous community nuisance for decades. Click on the N Cedar St Project menu item to learn more about this project and keep up-to-date on our progress. New  Laramie PAH study documents posted 8/22/2013. Links to these documents can be found at the bottom of the list of documents on the N Cedar St. Project page.
