CHEYENNE – Plans to develop land south of F.E. Warren Air Force Base to provide additional housing for airmen moved forward Wednesday when the Wyoming Business Council Board of Directors freed up $400,000 in grant funding for the city of Cheyenne to begin its designs for the project.

The project to build housing and commercial developments on a 74-acre plot of land just south of the base between Happy Jack Road and Old Happy Jack Road gained initial approval from the State Loan and Investment Board in June 2018. The board then awarded a $3 million Business Ready Community grant and a roughly $1.3 million loan for the project.
