CHEYENNE, Wyo. — The Cheyenne Downtown Development Authority received a 2022 Economic Development Award from the Mid-America Economic Development Council last week.

The award recognized the DDA’s efforts to revitalize and brand Cheyenne’s downtown district through the installation of three projects: the crosswalk mural in the West Edge District, the “CHEYENNE” sign installed on Lincolnway and a downtown banner with images showcasing the city’s main attractions.

The DDA was one of 11 national organizations to be recognized by the Mid America EDC and the first organization from Wyoming to receive an award from the large market division for organizations with populations of 50,000 or more. The Mid-America EDC is a multi-state association dedicated to making contact with site selectors and advancing regional economic development programs.

“It’s an honor for our work to be recognized by the Mid-America EDC, especially in the large
market division with so many other fantastic organizations representing communities three times
our size,” said Cheyenne DDA Vice President Haylee Chenchar. “The support from our community is what makes projects like these so successful and we look forward to continuing to build on the growth and momentum of downtown Cheyenne.”
