Botanic Gardens -
A $16 million renovation and expansion to the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens will go forward, thanks to voters’ approval of the project. Botanic Gardens Director Shane Smith said, “We feel really wonderful.” The renovation and expansion project will ensure that future generations can enjoy the Botanic Gardens, he added. “I think it will be a big contributor to Cheyenne’s quality of life,” Smith said. Voters approved it by a margin of 56% (12,091 vote) to 44% (9.579 votes). The Botanic Gardens project will also help make the facility more of an education center for children, Smith said, adding that it will have a Navy submarine periscope installed.
