While City Council approved trading the city's Strawberry Fields open space to The Broadmoor on May 24, some new developments are taking shape, as reported in Wednesday's Independent. An update:

• Save Cheyenne has hired Charles Norton, a Denver attorney, who plans to file a lawsuit within days, challenging the decision.

• Save Cheyenne is considering collecting signatures to mount a ballot measure for the April 2017 city election that would require voters be consulted on any park land and open space trades or sales.

• Save Cheyenne has an office set up at 322 N. Tejon Street, Suite 206, which is above Richard Skorman's businesses. Skorman is the organization's leader. For info, call 578-5513.

• Skorman is still giving guided tours of Strawberry Fields. Meet daily at 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. at Sacred Grounds coffee shop at 1801 Cheyenne Boulevard.

• Now that Save Cheyenne has its non-profit designation by the IRS, donations are tax deductible.
