The second in a series of hands-on public workshops, hosted by the City of Sheridan, was held Tuesday night at the YMCA to look at potential street improvements in the Jefferson and Dow Street areas near the Y.  Problems already identified by the City are street widths, drainage, pathway connectivity, traffic speeds, and aging water and sewer lines.

Melissa Butcher, facilitator of public input tells us.

It was a planning session to hear what the people had to say, sparking additional ideas and gaining a fresh perspective from the twenty-plus attendees at the informational meeting. Dow and Jefferson Streets form a very busy part of our community, carrying up to 1,400 cars each day.

There are three different options being looked at for the area improvements, but no specific design has been set in place and the City will host at least two more meetings to fine-tune the options.  Construction could begin as early as next summer.
