A joint work session between the Laramie County Board of Commissioners, the Cheyenne City Council, and Mayor Richard Kaysen was held on April 3, 2013, to discuss the status of the ongoing PlanCheyenne update. PlanCheyenne is the Cheyenne Area’s Master Land Use and Transportation Plan, first adopted by the City and County in October of 2006. The MPO is working closely with a nationally recognized consultant team comprised of Clarion and Associates and Fehr & Peers to complete the 5-year update.
At the joint session, Ben Herman and Darci White (Clarion) and Ann Bowers (Fehr & Peers) led a brief, informative presentation to update the group on the update process, followed by an opportunity for comments, questions, and discussion.
Cheyenne Transit on the Move – The Cheyenne Transit Program (CTP) and the Cheyenne Regional Metropolitan Planning Organization have just begun a Five Year Transit Plan Study. The study, which is being conducted by Transit Plus a Greenwood Village, Colorado based transit consulting firm, was commissioned to evaluate current CTP services and develop alternatives that could improve the system.
Public involvement will be a large part of the study with two public meetings and an online survey included in the process. Public meetings, which will be announced two weeks before they are scheduled, will be in an open house format, with participants encouraged to share their views of CTP and public transportation in general.
