Sweetgrass is proposed as a ±2,349.5-acre community envisioned as a distinctive mixed-use master planned village, integrating retail, entertainment, lodging, employment opportunities, and variety of intimately scaled residential neighborhoods. All of these will be unified and connected through a comprehensive open space network with a variety of recreational amenities. The Lummis family, historically cattle ranchers, have been good stewards of their land and ranching operations and are prepared to make the same commitment to the development of the Sweetgrass community.
- Create a community design that embraces the ranch's natural features, particularly its short grass prairie;
- Promote a community vision committed to lifestyle and quality of life;
- Create smaller residential planning areas with a variety of residential products and density, creating a rich community texture and diversity, meeting the needs of students, singles, families, empty-nesters, and retirees;
- Develop an intimately scaled, pedestrian friendly Village Center that provides shopping and commercial development opportunities to complement the surrounding residential and employment communities, as well as serve as a focal point for the community;
- Incorporate a landmark golf course and destination resort and conference facility;
- Allow opportunities for the development of upscale commercial, retail, lodging, and entertainment venues along College Avenue;
- Provide a variety of recreational amenities;
- Incorporate an open space theme, focused on as many homes as possible being located on greenbelts or natural areas with a comprehensive hierarchy of pedestrian connections;
- Encourage the clustering of residential neighborhoods to reduce the impact of development;
- Enrich the residential, commercial and institutional resources of the City of Cheyenne and surrounding region.
