SE Group completed a Land Use Plan for the Pilot Hill Project, a nonprofit based in Albany County, Wyoming. The project aims to protect over 7,000 acres of open space, promote economic development, and conserve wildlife habitat. Our team collaborated with the community and land management agencies to develop a land use plan and trail system that balances conservation and recreation and connects with Laramie neighborhoods and businesses and the adjacent National Forest.

An interagency group comprising Wyoming State Parks, the U.S. Forest Service, and Game and Fish discussed land use for the Pilot Hill parcel. The community was consulted throughout the process to create a sustainable 43.9-mile trail network for hikers, mountain bikers, and horseback riders. The Pilot Hill Land Use Plan was awarded the 2020 Wyoming Planning Project of the Year by the Wyoming Planning Association (WYOPASS).
