The City of Sheridan adopted its first Entryway Corridor ordinance in 2003 in response to concerns over big box development and recommendations of the Vision 2020 Growth Management Plan. In 2008, the City commissioned the Zucker study that took an in depth look at the community's development process.
The City recently approved on first reading an ordinance that will shorten the length of time that design approval takes, by having applications be reviewed administratively instead of going through the Planning Commission. City of Sheridan Planning Director Robert Briggs.
Briggs says that the ordinance also allows for a little more leniency on cell phone towers within an entryway corridor.
Before the changes take effect, the City Council must approve the ordinance on two more readings.
