PERMITTING AND DEVELOPMENT:
Laramie County Development Process:
All developers, including Oil and Gas Operators, must obtain a County-assigned site address prior to the start of construction of any access onto any right-of-way or construction of any primary structure (Section 2-2-126, Laramie County Land Use Regulations).
Step 1: Pre-Application Meeting
Call the Laramie County Planning and Development Office, (307) 633-4303, to schedule a pre-application meeting. The County has set aside Wednesdays at 1:00 p.m. for Oil and Gas Applicants to meet with the Planning Dept., Public Works, and the Environmental Health Dept.. (Please try to schedule a pre-application meeting at least two days in advance of the Wednesday you'd like to meet so we can ensure all Departments can be present.)
Step 2: Complete the Application Package:
Whether or not the following permits are required will be determined at the pre-application meeting.

Step 3: Approvals
Laramie County has sequenced the approval process to ensure cross-department coordination.
Many companies prefer to permit multiple well locations well in advance of rig move-in dates. As a courtesy, please inform all Departments when rigs are being moved to a new well pad. If haul routes are modified, please inform the Public Works Department of any changes.
Thank you for your cooperation.
