The Problem

Economic decline has resulted in an increase in vacant and underutilized commercial buildings downtown, most directly impacting approximately 4,800 local residents.

The Idea

The City of Cheyenne will catalyze the city core’s revitalization by matching owners of underutilized commercial properties with entrepreneurs, supported by creative redevelopment incentives.

What Marian Orr, Mayor of Cheyenne, WY is saying:

That Cheyenne was selected as a Champion City is not only an honor, it will be difference-maker in redeveloping our ‘original city.'
