A yearslong project to bring a new data center to Cheyenne is nearing the finish line, Mayor Patrick Collins says.

"We have been working with the company for over five years now," Collins, who met with company representatives last week, said Friday in his Mayor's Minute column.

"We are so close to getting this project to the finish line," he added.

Collins says the potential new data center, which has been given the code name Project Cosmo, would be located in the new High Plains Business Park between Clear Creek Parkway and South Greeley Highway, south of College Drive.


"Cheyenne has become a destination for data centers," said Collins.

"The fiber optic backbone running along I-80 combined with our cool temperatures, low humidity, and lower operating costs make us a great choice," he added.

Collins says Cheyenne LEADS, which serves as the economic development entity for the city and Laramie County, has found that demand for Cheyenne in the data center arena is growing, and they hope to see more successes in the future.
