CASPER, Wyo. — A right-of-way underlying the Natrona County High School stadium and field has officially been vacated.

The Casper City Council approved the vacation of the right-of-way during their Tuesday, May 21 meeting. The vacation applies to a portion of South Elm Street between West Collins Avenue and West 8th Street.

The Natrona County School District had requested that the undeveloped, platted right-of-way underlying the Natrona County High School football stadium and field be vacated.

“The right-of-way in question was assumed to have been vacated years ago; however, during the review of a cell tower lease with Verizon, the District could not find proof that the street had ever been officially vacated,” a memo in Council’s work packet states.

“The School District has provided a signed petition with signatures of a majority of the property owners, who own a majority of the property proposed for vacation, and extending 300 feet in all directions.”

“In addition, the District has obtained easement releases from all affected Casper utility providers.”
