The Casper Star recently published an article, “The Air Force may pump $5b into Cheyenne for a new generation of nuclear weapons.”
The article stated “The United States military is expected to spend between $4 billion and $5 billion over the next 10 to 20 years in Cheyenne to modernize F.E. Warren Air Force Base’s intercontinental ballistic missiles system. That kind of money would be significant anywhere, but especially so in Cheyenne where it could more than quadruple the typical amount of construction spending in the city.”
Nothing has happened liked this since the 50s. It is going to be an endeavor the community will need to unite to execute and the business community will most certainly profit from.
Article also stated, “It’s good news to locals. Dale Steenbergen, president of the Greater Cheyenne Chamber of Commerce described it as “huge dollars.”
This modernization is going to be positive for the greater Cheyenne area economy and surrounding regions. Additionally, this weapon system upgrade is going to be critical for National security. The Greater Cheyenne Chamber of Commerce has worked hard with their Wyoming Wranglers to ensure this investment. Economic advancement is a primary objective of the organization and their influence of the years has helped to bring this to the forefront.
