Cheyenne, WY (KGWN) - The "hole" downtown is getting a new face. On Thursday of this week, the Downtown Development Authority voted to build a new fence with a special twist.
The fence will be 10 feet high, but will also feature pictures of kids from around the area. Michael Smith, a photo editor for the Wyoming Tribune Eagle will take the photos for the project which is expected to start in mid June and be finished by mid July in time for Frontier Days.
Amy Surdam, the president of the children museum's board of directors made the proposal to the DDA and is extremely excited about the new fence saying, "...it is just a great representation of who we are, that we want to give our community something beautiful, something inspiring, for our community and for our children..."
The fence will be up until construction on the new children's museum is complete. Surdam says that they will most likely have a picture day to get the photos of the kids and that it will be open to anyone who wants to participate.
