Landlocked Cheyenne a “Best City for Global Trade”
The magazine said Cheyenne was one of the 10 best cities in the country for “Site Selection Assistance,” or business recruiting. Cheyenne LEADS, the economic development agency that does most of Laramie County’s recruiting, took most of the honor.
“Cheyenne was chosen as one of America’s best cities primarily based on the work Cheyenne LEADS has done for economic development in the city,” stated Patrick Dooley, Global Trade editor in a release. Magazine officials further said that the nonprofit “serves as a link in assisting site selectors and advises non-retail businesses in all phases of relocation to the area.”
That is particularly true since LEADS owns the Cheyenne Business Parkway, a 900-acre business park, and the 620-acre North Range Business Park, “both of which have build-to-suit opportunities available.”
The publication also called out Microsoft’s growing data center as a reason to watch economic development efforts in Cheyenne.
