Downtown is near and dear to our hearts at RE/MAX Capitol Properties.
We love that it has a prominent historic footprint, it is the home to one of the few gold-topped Capitols in the United States, and it cherishes its roots with trains and transportation as a highlight. Recently the Downtown Development Authority announced Laramie County Commissioner and Chairwoman, Amber Ash as their new Executive Director.
“I feel like downtown has come a long way but it still has enormous potential.” expressed Executive Director Amber Ash, ” I really wanted to be a part of that and to help move it forward.”
The applicant pool for the position included 24 from the Front Range and the DDA Board of Directors confidently selected Amber Ash because of her passion for the area and overall experience in community development. Ash started her position earlier this year and plans to take the organization to the next level under her leadership. This change also was a recent location change of the DDA office. They once occupied the corner retail spot at 1601 Capitol Avenue and have since relocated up the street to 109 W. 17th St. This was deemed as a positive change because it opened up prime retail space in downtown Cheyenne that could easily capitalize on the foot traffic of the intersection.
“The new office space for the DDA is now also among fellow businesses on 17th street and can now have a better pulse on business needs and better understand visitors more.” shared a DDA Volunteer upon the move of the office.
Be sure to stop into the DDA and get to know the new Executive Director and all of the volunteers. The businesses in downtown are supported and encouraged by this organization, they will always love to hear from you. Help them with this important refresh to their organization, and let’s make downtown Cheyenne even stronger.
