Business Council Board reviews grant applications

(Cheyenne, Wyo.) The Wyoming Business Council Board of Directors recommended $9,792,914 in Business Ready Community grants during Thursday’s quarterly meeting at the Lincoln Center in Torrington. The State Loan and Investment Board will make final decisions at its meeting on April 7th in Cheyenne. Some of the projects proposed include a $190,000 Community Enhancement grant to add infrastructure for RV camping spots and to construct 20 permanent horse stalls at the Southern Campbell County Agriculture Complex located on the western edge of Wright, just south of Highway 387. The improvements are designed to attract multi-day events capable of increasing sales, fuel and lodging tax revenues for the energy-dependent local economy. The board recommended funding for that in full. They did not recommend funding two other projects in Northeast Wyoming. Upton requested a $386,047 Community Enhancement grant to improve the city's park infrastructure. The project is expected to improve quality of life and bolster business recruitment. Hulett requested a $25,000 planning grant to develop a plan for a new health clinic. #county17 #news *Feature Photo: Wyoming Business Alliance Steering Committee member Ann Nelson updates the Wyoming Business Council Board of Directors about the Tour 23 project during Thursday's quarterly meeting at the Lincoln Center in Torrington h/t Andy Greenman / Wyoming Business Council*
