Question:

How is the Bar at 3rd and Grand not in violation of some city code? The hoops that other businesses jump through to maintain compliance is astounding yet this bar can look like an annex to the City Landfill. It is not attractive and detracts from the other business in the downtown area.

Answer:

“The construction at the old Cowboy bar is not a Change in Use triggering any site modifications.   Chapter 15 of the Laramie Municipal Code (Unified Development Code) and the Downtown Design Guidelines do not identify standards for the construction of outdoor patios and seating areas. The developer has worked with staff to ensure that all required applications and permits have been applied for.”
