Town of Basin Master Plan
In 2010, the Town applied for a Community Development Block Grant through the Wyoming Business Council to complete an update to the existing Town Master Plan. Here you can view all of the information resulting from that effort, starting with reading about this Process.
The Agendas and Minutes of the Planning Commission and Town Master Plan Committee can be found in each of our Agenda and Minutes pages by year.
