Monday morning at Pointe Frontier, Mayor Marian Orr read and signed a proclamation for National Assisted Living Week. In 1995, the National Center for Assisted Living established National Assisted Living Week to honor the contributions of assisted living communities in providing long term care to America's seniors and individuals with disabilities. This year's theme is "Capture the Moment," which hopes to inspire assisted living residents to enjoy the present while celebrating the past.
Today we pay tribute to those who lost their lives on Sept. 11, 2001. On that day, two planes were flown into the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, a third plane hit the Pentagon just outside Washington, D.C., and the fourth plane crashed in a field in Pennsylvania. Almost 3,000 people were killed during the 9/11 terrorist attacks including 343 firefighters and paramedics, and 60 police officers.
Temporary Parking Changes Made Near Municipal Building 
CHEYENNE – As construction continues near the City of Cheyenne Municipal Building (2101 O’Neil Ave.), Mayor Marian Orr has announced a temporary closure to the building’s north parking lot. The closure is effective Friday, September 7 and is expected to be in effect through November.

The public is encouraged to utilize the Cox Parking Structure during this time and access the Municipal Building through the east door. Handicap spaces are located on the west side of the structure’s main level nearest the Municipal Building. Parking is available for two hours in open spaces for those doing business in the Municipal Building. Please respect all signage in the garage as other entities have leased spaces.
