The Sheridan College Main Street campus was the site for a Priority Setting meeting held by the Center for a Vital Community and the Wyoming Rural Development Council Thursday evening.

In September of 2010, the CVC worked with a team from the Development Council to receive input from the public on what they would like to see for the future of Sheridan. The listening sessions that were held last year were part of a five-year follow up to the community assessment.

Those in attendance Thursday outlined major priorities out of a number of themes that were highlighted during last year's public input sessions. Jo Ferguson with the WRDC explains that the next step is to categorize the top priorities that the group came up with.

Economic Diversity, infrastructure, and downtown renovation seemed to be the clear cut top three priorities that were agreed upon by the twenty-some people at the meeting. Ferguson said that she will have the priority grid ready to be sent to Mayor Dave Kinskey within the next week.
