Wyoming [re]Imagined

The Wyoming [re]Imagined document will be the Master Plan for the City of Wyoming. In the spring of 2019, we began the process of updating the Master Plan. It will create a blueprint for our future. The new Wyoming [re]Imagined Master Plan will be an official municipal document. It provides a framework for future growth and reinvestment within the City over the next 15 to 20 years.

Over the past decade, Wyoming has experienced a steady growth rate. Our population increased by 3,000 people (4.2 percent) between 2010 and 2017. By 2045, Wyoming is expected to add 8,854 more households to our community. This plan provides a framework for this expected growth.

This is a community-driven plan. The visions and goals shared by community residents, stakeholders, and business owners are reflected in it. Please take some time to read through this plan and confirm that we captured what you told us. 

Wyoming [re]Imagined Draft Document

We've provided the full document and broken out each chapter to make it easier to navigate. Take time to review these documents to see if we captured Wyoming's vision for the future. 

Attend an Open House Event
