Downtown Development Authority Looking for Board Members

By Staff – 15 Nov ’14

Mayor Rick Kaysen is looking for local residents who are interested in serving on the Downtown Development Authority Board.

The DDA is comprised of a volunteer Board of Directors committed to the improvement and revitalization of downtown Cheyenne. The Board establishes the long-term vision and the four DDA committees (Urban Design, Downtown Beautification, Marketing, and Economic Development) serve to assist in accomplishing those defined objectives.

The only requirement to serve on the board is that a majority of the members on the DDA board, except any member from the City of Cheyenne governing body, shall reside, be a lessee or own property in the downtown development district.

The district is bounded by House Avenue on the east, Snyder Avenue on the west, 22nd Street on the north and the Union Pacific Railroad tracks on the south and a small strip south of the Central Avenue viaduct that is bounded by Central Avenue on the east, Capitol Avenue on the west, Deming Drive on the south and West 11th Street on the north.

Applications for these volunteer positions are available on the City’s website at (click on “Boards and Commissions” under “Government”) or contact Virginia Riley at the Mayor’s Office by e-mail at, or call 637-6300, or stop by the Municipal Building at 2101 O’Neil Avenue, Room 310. All applications must be submitted directly to the Mayor’s Office.

All applications must be submitted to the Mayor’s Office by 5 p.m. on Friday, January 2, 2015.
