With a B.A. in Art and a Master’s in Planning, Vicki brings a creative yet analytical approach to downtown development. Her prior experience in downtown development includes running local Main Street programs in Oklahoma and Oregon, as well as leading the Oregon Downtown Development Association for eleven years where she facilitated 120 downtown planning projects throughout Oregon, Montana, Washington and Idaho. A new resident to Cheyenne, Vicki believes that downtown is ready to “pop” as a thriving, inviting live/work/play destination and is looking forward to helping this vision come to fruition.
