CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Beginning Monday, March 20, the City of Cheyenne will launch a new online application portal powered by cloud software provider OpenGov.

The platform will allow constituents to apply and pay for various Planning and Development applications online.

The online portal is available at cheyennewy.viewpointcloud.com/.

The site is also accessible on the homepage of www.cheyennecity.org by clicking on the Licenses and Permits tab.

More information on how to utilize the platform can be found below in the FAQ section.

A computer kiosk is available near the Planning and Development office, located at 2101 O’Neil Ave, Room 202, for those in need of assistance with completing an online application.

The city has also created a dedicated web page for department-specific FAQs at www.cheyennecity.org/FAQ.  

With this move, the city aims to streamline the application process for constituents and meet the business needs in an ever-increasing digital world.

With paper applications shifting to a thing of the past, constituents can apply for Planning and Development projects online, communicate directly with staff and remain apprised of their application status and progression from start to finish.

The city’s Planning and Development Department joins the City Clerk Department in transitioning to online applications. The City Clerk Department began accepting online applications earlier this month.

Other city departments will also transition to the OpenGov platform soon. The city will make those announcements at a later date.

What is Viewpoint Cloud?

ViewPoint Cloud is the software program that powers the City of Cheyenne’s online permitting center. It is a part of OpenGov. With this system, residents will be able to submit an online application from anywhere 24/7, monitor the status of the application online, receive notifications via email as their application is reviewed and processed, request inspections, communicate with inspectors or staff and receive documents.

How long is it going to take to apply for a permit?

Only a few minutes. The first application may take a few additional steps because of registering and activating your account and then learning the new process.

How do I follow along with the progression of my application?

Once an application is submitted, the applicant will be notified via email if any additional action is required. This includes receiving an email to pay for an application, if staff comment on an application, or if additional documents are needed for the application. Applicants can also log into their account 24/7 to see what departments have completed your application review, what departments are currently reviewing and what departments have yet to review.
