Today  our special featured interview will be at 9:07AM MST as we discuss the "The Dollars & Sense of Downtown Development"

The State Historic Preservation Office, City Staff and the Sonoran Institute  have partnered to bring Joe Minicozzi to Cheyenne to analyze the property tax benefits of Downtown to the community.  Joe's analysis brings into stark reality the fact that cities need to think like farmers - in terms of yield per acre.  In this case, the yield in tax revenue per acre of development.  His upcoming presentation demonstrates the value of downtown, with comparisons from towns around the west.
