Town Hall Meeting Draws Out Opponents of Plan Cheyenne

By  | 

Cheyenne, WY (KGWN) - More than 100 Cheyenne and Laramie County residents came out to learn more about the possible negative effects of Plan Cheyenne on Sunday.

Hosted by Laramie County Commissioner M. Lee Hasenauer, the meeting focused on the effects of Plan Fort Collins and what they could mean for Cheyenne if Plan Cheyenne is implemented.

Plan Cheyenne is a master plan for the city that was adopted back in 2006. Since then Metropolitan Planning Organization has been working on implementing the four steps that include Snapshot, Structure, Shape, and Build.

Stacy Lynne spoke for about two hours about Plan Fort Collins and the money spent on various projects laid out in that plan. She criticized the public arts projects and increased public transportation.

Hasenauer himself says he'd like to see the people of Cheyenne vote on this master plan. '"I'd like to see a ballot vote on this on if we want to continue plan Cheyenne with that sort of money --114 million dollars. We vote on 5th penny tax we vote on 6th penny tax why not put it up to a vote by the people and see if we want to spend 114 million dollars just going to the MPO?"
