Outdoor task force

The public is invited to attend the Wyoming Bicycle and Pedestrian Task Force’s 10 a.m. meeting on Sept. 27 at the Game and Fish Office located at 260 Buena Vista in Lander.

Those unable to attend are encouraged to call visit or call 872-240-3212 and enter access code 729-544-949.

Formed by the 2016 Wyoming Legislature, the 13-member task force’s vision is a Wyoming where people choose to walk and ride on a greatly enhanced transportation and recreation system.

To that end, task force members are studying the potential economic and health benefits to nonmotorized transport, and the safety and funding challenges involved. 

The task force will review the final report and make any recommendations for changes before submitting a plan for improving Wyoming’s pedestrian and nonmotorized transportation infrastructure to Gov. Matt Mead Oct. 1.

The public may comment on the draft plan by visiting or emailing Task Force Chairman Tim Young at
