City hosting open house May 30 for public input on Belvoir Ranch

Belvoir Ranch (City of Cheyenne)

CHEYENNE, Wyo. — The City of Cheyenne is updating the Belvoir Ranch Master Plan and is seeking input from residents as the update moves forward.

The original Belvoir Ranch Master Plan was adopted 16 years ago and outlined future land uses for the property.

Since then, some of the planned development on the Belvoir, like wind energy and recreational trails, has come to fruition, while other uses have not. The city wants to ensure any future development aligns with community wants, needs and goals, acknowledging those may have changed since the 2008 version of the master plan, a news release said.

The City of Cheyenne is planning to construct a new trailhead to the Belvoir Ranch by the end of the year. The trailhead would then be open to the public in early 2025.

On Jan. 9, the City of Cheyenne received an ARPA-funded $486,736 grant from the Wyoming Office of Outdoor Recreation to go toward construction of a trailhead and initial trails at the Belvoir Ranch. Combined with a match of $121,684 from the City’s Belvoir Ranch Recreation Special Fund, the money will allow city workers to begin building recreational trails on the property later this year.

A public open house will take place from 4 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday, May 30 at the Laramie County Library, 2200 Pioneer Ave., in the third-floor Sunflower Room. Residents will have the opportunity to share their thoughts on the Belvoir and provide input on what the property should be used for in the future.
