On Tuesday, May 8, 2008 Cheyenne Voters approved a penny tax that included $750,000 for the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens which will go towards planning, engineering and designs for repairs, renovations and expansion of the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens Conservatory.
The total cost of construction today would be $10,000,000. Funds for construction are anticipated to come from City of Cheyenne lands sales.
