Thank You!
 

Thanks go to the nearly 500 Cheyenne-area residents completing the Artspace Market Survey about the local arts community. The survey results will determine if there is a need in Cheyenne for affordable living and working spaces for area artists.

DOA-Main Street Board President, Hans Seitz said he is pleased with the number of people who took the survey. In August, DOA-Main Street's board will study information from the survey results. The results will give the board direction in moving forward with the Artspace project.

Curious about Artspace and the many successful Artspace community projects throughout the United States? Visit Artspace.org and see the exciting developments (many in historic buildings) the Artspace program has created.

Façade Improvement Program Update-Dave Ohde-Design Committee Chairman
 
The Façade Improvement Program (FIP) is a new DDA/MS program funded by DDA/MS, the City of Cheyenne and the Cheyenne Laramie County Economic Development Joint Powers Board.

The FIP is a competitive matching grant program to help downtown Cheyenne property owners improve the exterior appearance of their building. Nine applications were received for this years funding cycle and range from small fix-up projects to larger restoration efforts.

The applications will undergo a review process conducted by the DDA/MS Design Committee to determine which projects should receive funding. It is expected that construction will start this summer for several projects.

Although the application process is closed for this funding cycle, this is expected to be an annual program with more projects funded each year. If you have an interest in improving your building façade with financial assistance in the future contact Rockie at the DDA office for details about the program.
 

 
New DDA/Main Street Program Manager on Board
 

The Cheyenne DDA/Main Street organization has hired Rockie Hiser as their new Program Manager. Rockie accepted the position in March of this year and brings with her years' experience in working with property and business owners with her.

A Wyoming native, Rockie understands the culture of our state well, and is encouraging to prospects that Wyoming- especially Cheyenne- is a great place to live and work. "I've always known that Cheyenne was something special."

Having lived in many different areas of the state, Rockie says that Cheyenne is the "perfect spot." "Cheyenne is certainly growing- but we still have our roots. The history of this town and the people who have helped develop it over the years are really engrained in what we have. We are finding our identity as a modern city with modern amenities- but will always be iconic for our western heritage, our military community, and our governmental affiliation."

Rockie says her first steps as the new Program Manager are to "take action!" She explains that there are many ideas concerning what to do with downtown- but that it is collaboration with the other organizations in the area, strong leadership, and prioritizing tasks that is going to make the difference. She will oversee the DDA/Main Street programs and special events. Rockie previously held the position of Director of Community Investment for our Greater Cheyenne Chamber of Commerce and helped in the efforts of increasing Chamber membership, retaining existing members, event planning, and sponsorship/fundraising.

Rockie is well connected with individuals and business owners in the community and is confident that the relationships she has developed over the years will aid her in making the DDA programs and projects a success.
