Sheridan Media's Chris Foy brings us the latest development news from Monday's meeting of the Sheridan Planning Commission.
The Sheridan City Planning Commission voted unanimously Monday night to recommend approval for annexation of the Sheridan Links Planned Unit Development into the City, as well as the conceptual plan and design report.
The proposed development spans nearly 58 acres and is located at the old Sheridan Country Club just southeast of Mydland Road and West Fifth Street. Planning and Development Director for the City, Robert Briggs, explains what the applicant has proposed to build - and keep - on the 57.48 acre property.
Sheridan Links, LLC is the investment group that's moving the project forward and civil engineer for the project, Ryan Christensen with Ridgepoint Consulting, told the commissioners the developer plans to incorporate open space and a country feel within a gated community.
Additionally, Christensen said the developer plans to keep as many as holes in play on the golf course as possible and keep some of the property's older trees incorporated in the landscaping.
There were two minor conditions in the approval of annexation and approval of the design plans by the planning commission. The commissioners agreed the developer must ensure the property meets the 20 percent open space rule as defined in city code and that the planned unit development be labeled as such in the conceptual plat and design report.
The Sheridan Links Planned Unit Development will now head to the city council with the planning commission's full recommendation.
