CHEYENNE – With the approval of the Cheyenne City Council and Laramie County commissioners, part of Frontier Park that was previously used for the Laramie County Fair will move back under the city’s control.

In 1992, lots 2, 3 and 4 of Frontier Park were leased to the Cheyenne-Laramie County Joint Powers Board so the space could be used for the county fair. With the new Event Center at Archer opening last summer, County Commissioner Buck Holmes said the county no longer has a need for the space.
