Part of the Sheridan County Comprehensive Plan that was adopted in 2008 called for a large rezone of land Northwest of the Town of Dayton. The Sheridan County Commissioners Tuesday approved rezoning 4,089 acres of land from urban or rural residential to agricultural as part of the Dayton Northwest Lands rezone.
Sheridan County Planner Mark Reid says that the rezone doesn't discourage people from developing their own property, but encourages proper development.
Along with the rezone, Commissioners approved to lift a temporary freeze on the division of land in the area. Commissioners also approved a request for a Conditional Use Permit from Kyler Washut to purchase and store professional grade fireworks for personal use in a bunker at his residence in the Terra Vista subdivision.
Commissioners tabled an agreement with the City of Sheridan and the Sonoran Institute to participate in the Goose Creek Initiative, which would address water quality issues of both Little Goose and Big Goose Creeks.
