Laramie County Commissioners say they will honor a request to postpone consideration of a proposal to allow horse racing at Frontier Park.

The item had been slated for consideration this afternoon.

But commissioners on Monday received a statement from Cheyenne Frontier Days and Accel Entertainment asking for a postponement [see below].

A post on the Laramie County Government Facebook page says "It is the intention of the Commission to honor the request of the applicant and postpone the matter."

The letter to the commission reads in part ''CFD has heard our neighbors. There are questions in regard to traffic control, the potential for noise, and other impacts. We will take the steps necessary to develop the needed information and present it to the city and our neighbors with regards to these concerns and present solutions."

At another point, the statement pledges to "work with Cheyenne Mayor Patrick Collins and the city of Cheyenne to hear concerns about horse racing."
