(Lander, Wyo.) – Yesterday a grassroots effort resulted in approximately 75 people riding the Tomato Loop on the south side of Lander to show support for the proposed construction and walking/biking path along Mortimore Lane.
Thanks to Joanne Slingerland for the photos of walkers and cyclists who took advantage of the nice weather. The Tomato Loop is composed of Fremont Street to Sinks Canyon Road to Mortimore Lane to Hillcrest Drive and the back to Fremont Street.
The Mortimore Lane proposed widening and adding a pathway has garnered passionate arguments for it and against it. On Tuesday, The Fremont County Commission will take public comments. The commission meeting is scheduled to start at 9 a.m., and the comments are expected to be part of a transportation department report that starts at 9:15 a.m.
