CHEYENNE – In an effort to address a severe housing shortage in Cheyenne, members of the City Council reviewed a report Friday identifying barriers and outlining steps to take.

Not only did the report confirm the insufficient access to affordable housing and renters facing stiffer burdens than homeowners, it revealed residents see the housing crisis as a pivotal issue. They detailed in a survey the need for a housing plan, concern about the market, and placed an emphasis on developing in the downtown core, as opposed to on the city’s periphery.
