The MPO is working with the City and its Stakeholders to develop a Strategic Parking Management Plan for the downtown area that serves diverse needs and enables the City to manage parking in downtown in the most cost effective and efficient manner.

The goal of this study is to make it easier for residents and visitors to access downtown Cheyenne safely and efficiently using their preferred means of transportation. The draft Plan has been available for review since January 2016. The  draft final Plan (March 2017) was presented to the City Planning Commission on April 17, 6:00 PM. Planning Commission has recommended approval of the Plan. It will now be presented to the Cheyenne Governing Body.

Study Area

The City has been making efforts to make downtown Cheyenne more attractive, vibrant, walkable, family friendly as well as business friendly where residents would feel comfortable living, working and playing. With that goal in mind, the City with its partners has been trying to breathe more life into the downtown area which would include a mix of uses and activities including commercial and retail, entertainment, housing and offices. Growth and activity in downtown is something that all communities want, however with greater amenities in downtown, the existing resources such as parking are stretched thin and will therefore need to be managed in the most effective way.
