What about water quality? Water softeners are recommended for Casper, Wyoming. This holds true for our water. Reverse osmosis or chlorination systems are subjects to bring up with the well driller as options.

Multiple lots have finished entrances or driveways rocked with dolomite and ready for someone to start building.

Are there building restrictions or requirements?
Owners are not required to build or use the property. One can purchase a lot for investment purposes as well. However, before any construction begins, the lot owner must submit a lot diagram or plan to the architectural committee. A lot plan would contain locations of all structures, well, septic system, driveway, etc. in relation to each other and the property lines. Distances to all of these on the diagram are required as there are setback requirements in the covenants and distance requirements for the county. (See the covenants under the information packet page.) Square footage on all buildings should also be included along with the colors of the structures. Once the plans have been approved by the architectural committee and you have begun construction, a lot owner has one year to complete the structure. Lot owners do not have to complete all structures or buildings on their lot simultaneously. However, the one year completion date will apply to each structure as it is started.
Are commercial activities allowed?
No business, commercial, or manufacturing enterprise, or any enterprise of any kind or nature, whether or not conducted for a profit, shall be operated, maintained or conducted on any lot or any improvement therein. Upon prior written approval of the architectural committee, an owner may have a home office within the dwelling on the owner’s lot, provided no business or commercial use violates county regulations and further provided that no business or commercial use interferes with the enjoyment or use of any part of the property.
Are animals and livestock allowed?
It shall be permissible for the owner of a lot, in addition to household pets and small livestock (e.g. ducks, rabbits) to own and maintain on the lot up to four horses or cows, llamas or similar livestock. For purposes of this restriction, two sheep or two goats shall be considered equivalent to one horse or cow. Swine, pigs and hogs are not allowed.
