CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Cheyenne’s growing capacity is driving the need to grow tourism. With the Downtown Development Authority merging with Visit Cheyenne, their new master plan seeks to do just that.

After six months of work, Visit Cheyenne is excited to unveil its master plan for tourism to become a community’s destination leader.

Creating 5 new strategies that will introduce the new vision for tourism in Cheyenne.

Visit Cheyenne is looking to elevate visitor’s experiences, enhance downtown destinations, streamline access to outdoor recreation, and create stronger advocacy and infrastructure within the organizing body of Cheyenne tourism.

“We have a direction specifically addressing things that the residents and visitors would like to see in our community going forward. Kind of carrying us into the next ten years,” said Domenic Bravo- CEO and President of Visit Cheyenne & Acting Director of the Downtown Development Authority.

This organization will become apparent in the 6th penny and grant requests.

It will also spill over into attractions like the western heritage, historical railroads, museums and the blossoming music theme and events that enhance people’s experiences circulating through the downtown core.

Whether it’s drinking on an outdoor patio, listening to live music. Visit Cheyenne wants people to stop by the shops or gaze at the Art Walk murals, cowboy boots and bronze statues, and for people to enjoy a laid-back weekend.

" It’s just a great time for us to be here in the middle of the tourist season, thinking about how we can work together in a much deeper and more robust way. I think by the end of the summer we’ll have everything flowing the way it needs to and just having a great time providing services to our customers,” said Bravo

The public hearing on the budget is also happening Wednesday, which is the first time the blended board gets together to talk bottom lines and create that “wow” factor for year-round tourism and attractions.

“It’s going to be a fun summer, and we just look forward to seeing you out and enjoying yourself whether you’re a resident or a visitor to our area,” said Bravo
