Central Wyoming College is working to expand with a new building in Jackson.

In 2022, Jackson voted to use taxpayer money to build a new building to house the Central Wyoming College campus in town. At the end of February, the town council voted to move ahead with the plan to design a 20,500-square-foot building near Jackson High School.

A Wyoming College Is Getting A Brand New Building

The main Central Wyoming College campus is in Riverton, and it has campuses in other cities like Lander, Dubois, and Jackson. The Jackson campus has been a part of CWC since the 1970s but has always been a part of other existing locations. Thanks to the Special Purpose Excise Tax that allocated $10 million in 2022, that will change now.

CWC offers over 50 options for degrees in many different fields, from accounting to welding, and having a new building dedicated solely to the school will be a huge opportunity for students.

The next step in the process will be for a development plan to be reviewed before moving on to the next step. According to a report at Buckrail.com, some concerns still need to be addressed before final approval is given.

  • Traffic Demand Management Plan.
  • Plan for landscaping from a Wyoming Landscape Architect.
  • Complete parking lot plans.
  • Safe way for bikes and pedestrians to connect to other local schools.
  • As part of the Development Plan submittal, they'll have to get all parties and departments on the same page with a final streetscape plan.
