Last week, Rawlins City Council unanimously agreed to waive utility fees for a planned urban orchard project on a city park.
If the project manager secures a $5,000 Wyoming State Forestry Grant, 24 fruit trees will be planted this April.
The council believes that the project will advance two of the council’s recently selected strategic goals for city attractiveness and beautification.
