CASPER, Wyo. — Casper’s population could get a boost as the city begins annexing multiple properties.

Tracts in South Garden Creek Acres Addition 1 and 2 will be incorporated into the City of Casper.

On Tuesday, the City Council also authorized city staff to initiate the annexation of multiple properties located east of Robertson Road and south of the Green Valley Mobile Home Park.

The next steps in the annexation of the properties are to inform owners, complete an annexation study and then bring the annexation back to the council.

Council would need to approve the annexations by ordinance and provide at least two public hearings during the annexation review.

The annexations near Robertson Road also require that city staff obtain a legal description of unplatted areas by conducting a survey prior to the other steps getting underway.

Council has been considering annexations in order to help boost Casper’s population ahead of the 2020 United States Census.
