Cheyenne’s mains street aims to grow
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - The Wyoming Main-Street Program has been busy with the Small Shop Saturdays, Small Business Saturday and the Downtown Giveaway.
These events help Cheyenne become eligible for accreditation within the Wyoming Main-Street Program.
“In Wyoming you have such a range of community sizes, just like the representation of the community. So its really exciting to see all the diverse groups get together in their communities, work on their downtown and see the downtown get better,” said Kayla Kler, Manger of Wyoming Main Street Program.
In the past, Cheyenne has successfully been accredited and has adapted throughout the pandemic. Currently, it’s eligible for renewing its State Main-Street accreditation.
Additionally, the National Main Street Center Program is visiting this week to ensure that national standards are met.
The national program will introduce new standards to continue to grow the local economy.
“Its really making sure that we have that joint public, private partnership, and that we’re really outlining the goals that we want to achieve. What will make Cheyenne an even a more fabulous downtown and then what actions are we taking to get there,” said Kathy La Plante, Senior Program Officer, National Main Street Center.
The program helps build and attract businesses and involves the community in decision-making about their downtown growth.
