Time for celebration as Laramie breaks ground on a two-story mixed-use building downtown to fill the hole. Wyoming Business Council provided a $3 million grant. The building will accommodate retail space on the ground floor and space available for tenant finish on the second floor. Ground floor space has been pre-leased to a local business, Big Hollow Food Co-op. The business anticipates this expansion will result in annual growth of 12 percent for the next five years. Big Hollow’s expansion is expected to create 12 jobs and capital investment of at least $600,000 during the next five years. Nearby businesses will benefit from increased traffic downtown and regional agricultural producers will benefit from increased demand. The project ties into the community’s plans to develop downtown and attract and grow a technology sector. Revenue generated from the lease and sale of building space will be reinvested in state economic development efforts and @downtownlaramie projects. #laramie #bighollowfoodcoop #wymainstreet
Asphalt is ready to be poured before 1,000 new horse stalls go up at the Sweetwater County Fair Grounds. The lot also includes water, sewer and self draining hydrants in place, as well as the curb and gutter. The Wyoming Business Council provided a $2.5 million Community Readiness grant to add infrastructure to the Sweetwater Events Complex located in Rock Springs. The complex will host the National High School Rodeo Finals in 2018, 2019, 2024 and 2025. The NHSRA produced an annual impact of $7,534,345 between 2012 and 2015 in Rock Springs. #thatswy #rodeo #rockspringswyoming
Rocks Springs-Sweetwater County broke ground on a new terminal and hangar this morning. Gov. Mead was on had to take part in the ceremony.
