Cheyenne officials are working on a plan to improve parking and mobility in the downtown area.

The Cheyenne Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is conducting a comprehensive study to look at the demand for the city's existing parking resources and how parking is currently being used.

Data from the study will be used to develop a Strategic Parking Plan that will provide near and long-term strategies to maximize parking and access to downtown.

"Effective parking and access management is an important part of the overall experience that residents and visitors have when visiting downtown Cheyenne," said Sreyoshi Chakraborty, Senior Planner with the Cheyenne MPO and Project Manager of the Strategic Parking Plan.

"We're working to develop a menu of parking and mobility options that support the city's efforts to make downtown Cheyenne an attractive, vibrant and family-friendly destination," added Chakraborty.

The Cheyenne MPO, in partnership with Kimley-Horn & Associates, will host a town hall meeting to kick off the project on Tuesday, June 7, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Asher Building. The meeting is free and open to the public.
