CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Three separate pockets of land have officially been folded into the Cheyenne city limits.

On Monday night, the Cheyenne City Council approved three annexation requests. One strip of land roughly 7.23 acres in size was brought into the Wyoming capital city to service the High Plains Business Park, according to Mayor Patrick Collins. The annexed parcel runs along High Plains Road starting at South Greeley Highway and ending at Division Avenue. The county requested the annexation.

Two other property owners also requested their land be annexed to the city. The first annexation is 9.3 acres of land located east of Saratoga Street and west of Whitney Road. The second is 1.6 acres of land at 4204 Dell Range Blvd.

Correction, May 5, 2024: A previous version of the story mistated the number of owners who initiated the annexations. All owners initiated the annexations, not just two. The reference of “county pockets” was altered, as not all of the annexed land is defined as a county pocket by the City of Cheyenne. The headline has also been updated to accurately convey that the High Plains Road annexation is the only land serving the business park.
