Kaysen Denies UDC/Agenda 21 Link
Cheyenne Mayor Rick Kaysen says, despite what many people believe, there is no link between the city’s Unified Development Code and a United Nations Document dating back to the early 1990’s known as Agenda 21.
Kaysen says the UDC–which officially took effect April 30th–is simply an effort to update and streamline the guidelines for development in the city. Kaysen says Agenda 21–which he describes as a ”nonbinding, philosophical document” has never been approved or even considered by the Cheyenne City Council.
Agenda 21 was originally labeled as a blueprint for sustainable communities. Some critics maintain the document is part of a plan to undermine capitalism and personal freedom and perhaps even pave the way for a world-wide government.
