More density, more affordability

Town of Saratoga could take from City of Cheyenne’s new density ordinances to open pathway to affordable housing

*Editor's Note: The online version of this article has had the headline updated to more accurately reflect the nature of the City of Cheyenne's ordinance*

As part of an effort to make housing more affordable, the City of Cheyenne, Wyoming, passed a group of ordinances in December that eliminate lot area minimums and density requirements for some types of housing.
