At their meeting Monday, the Sheridan City Planning Commission unanimously approved the preliminary plat for the Sheridan Links Planned Unit Development. Planning and Development Director for the City, Robert Briggs, says a preliminary plat is essentially the draft version of the final plat.
The proposed development spans nearly 57.5 acres and is located on the site of the old Country Club, southeast of West Fifth Street and Mydland Road - adjacent to the Sheridan County Fairgrounds. Briggs explains what's next in the development process.
Investment group Sheridan Links, LLC, is the developer that's moving the project forward. Based on an Internet search, attorney for the City, Greg Von Krosigk, is the registered agent for the group.
Representing the developer Monday was Ryan Christensen with Ridgepoint Consulting - who's also the civil engineer for the project. He says they plan on adding a secondary access road connecting Old Course Way and Fairway Court for emergency vehicles.
Christensen says all recommendations made previously by City staff and the planning commission have been worked out with the developer. A request for annexation of the development to be a part of the City of Sheridan - and a request to rezone the development as a PUD - will head next to the city council at their first meeting in June.
