Another year, another successful Superday for the City of Cheyenne! Fun was had by all on an absolutely beautiful day at Lions Park! A big thank you to all of our workers and volunteers who made it possible! See you in 2019.
Last week we hosted our second Buildings With A Purpose event as part of the @bloombergdotorg #MayorsChallenge!

Our most recent event was a focus group consisting of local building owners and entrepreneurs exploring what the specific role of a Business Liaison would be in our Buildings With A Purpose idea. Through a series of activities, our stakeholders identified what qualities of a potential Business Liaison would best impact the development of their respective building/business plans. 
The results showed a strong desire for a Business Liaison to be: •  Project Coordinator
Stakeholder comments: Has resources/knowledge so constituents aren’t getting passed around to different agencies instead of getting the answers they want…this person has the authority to bring the relevant people to the table and prompt them to action. • Passionate
Stakeholder comments: A person who truly cares about helping people find the info they need….go the extra mile…sincerity…genuinely listen…need to hear and express an understanding of the issue and show they care about the outcome. • Well Financed
Stakeholder comments: Department is well-funded and empowered to solve problems…adequate number of employees/staff…finding business owners/building owners the funding to develop buildings in downtown.

The focus group resulted in great discussions between stakeholders and City officials to move our Buildings With A Purpose idea forward!

Crews continue their work on the Civic Center Commons!
Mayor Marian Orr was on hand to speak at a Suicide Prevention press conference today at Taco Johns International. Following the press conference a check in the amount of $22,054.00 was presented to Rhianna Brand, the Operations Director for Grace for 2 Brothers -- a local suicide education and prevention organization in Cheyenne. 
Talking about suicide isn't easy. Supporting suicide prevention can be.
Gearing up for our next @bloombergdotorg #MayorsChallenege event as we advance our idea of Buildings With A Purpose! #BWAP
Earlier today, Cheyenne Police Department's Sargent Gay delivered the boxing trunks of Estevan Payan to Mayor Marian Orr. Payan competed in Saturday's first ever state sanctioned bare-knuckle boxing match and won via a first round knockout. Payan offered the trunks to Mayor Orr as a gesture of appreciation for the City hosting the event. It marked the first major bare-knuckle event in the United States since 1889.

Yesterday we visited the newly opened Mr. Jim’s Pizza (4001 Laramie St.). It marks the second Mr. Jim’s franchise in Cheyenne and third in the state of Wyoming.
Today we broke ground for the Civic Center Commons! Construction will take place at the now vacated West parking lot situated at W. 20th St. and O’Neil Ave. 
The site will be transformed into a park and flood control basin for the downtown Cheyenne area!
Today marked the 13th Annual Wyoming Reads Celebration! During today's event, City of Cheyenne Mayor Marian Orr read to first graders from Davis and Buffalo Ridge Elementary school at the Laramie County Library. 
Wyoming Reads was created to honor the memory of Sue Jorgensen, a first grade teacher in Casper. The purpose of the foundation is to gift a hardback book to every first grade student in all 23 Wyoming counties.
Flashback Friday!
