Cheyenne Mayor Rick Kaysen says critics of Plan Cheyenne need to remember the Converse/Pershing/19th Street Roundabout.

The mayor says the street project was widely criticized but has turned out to be a big success. He says both projects have been ''crucified" by the same type of critics, but  are actually instrumental in moving Cheyenne forward.

He compares opponents of the plan to people who would go on vacation by simply getting on an airplane without any destination in mind, and adds that sending Plan Cheyenne to a public vote would only "stymy the growth process".
