Save Cheyenne has filed a lawsuit challenging the city's land swap of open space to The Broadmoor, approved by City Council on May 24.

The documents were filed late Friday and contend the city doesn't have the authority to deed the 189-acre Strawberry Fields open space to a third party without a vote of the people. The tract was acquired by the city after voters approved of the purchase in 1885.

Save Cheyenne is a non-profit formed in the midst of discussion of the deal earlier this year. The swap gave the city roughly 370 acres of trail easements, wilderness property and a 9-acre tract adjacent to El Paso County's Bear Creek Regional Park, all owned by The Broadmoor.
