Laramie Associate Planner Matthew Cox answers questions about the Little Valley Subdivision on Bobolink Lane during the Laramie City Council’s Tuesday meeting. The City Council is deciding whether or not to annex the property into the city.

The Laramie City Council is one step closer to deciding whether to annex a county property within the Casper Aquifer Protection Overlay zone and whether to permit a dense housing development on the land.

During its meeting Tuesday, the City Council considered four agenda items relating to the Little Valley Subdivision on Bobolink Lane, including potential annexation, changing the property’s designation in the comprehensive plan, rezoning the property and approving the preliminary plat. Since annexation and zoning changes are ordinances requiring three readings, the City Council voted to postpone the items only requiring one reading — the preliminary plat and comprehensive plan change — to ensure the decisions lined up properly. Otherwise, councilors would be voting to approve a preliminary plat before it is even annexed into the city.
