The Sheridan City Planning Commission held a special work session Monday prior to their regularly scheduled meeting. Sheridan Media's Chris Foy was there and has the story.


We previously reported the Sheridan City Planning Commission was going to hold a special meeting with the Sheridan City Council to resolve some differences and work through what some commissioners called a disconnect between both bodies.

Though the city council was absent Monday, the planning commission held a work session to discuss planned unit developments. Planning Commissioner Thayer Shafer elaborates.

The planning commission had previously proposed including the city council in a discussion related to planned unit developments in order to, as commissioner Robert Webster put it at their April 23 meeting, get on the same page. Planning Commissioner Shafer explains.

Planning and Development Director for the City, Robert Briggs and the commissioners present, Shafer, Webster, Mike Giorgis and Monty Webb, discussed possibly revising certain parts of the PUD and subdivision regulations by possibly including an appendix that clearly states the City's requirements for those types of developments.

Shafer says the planning commission decided to postpone their work session with the city council, putting it off until budget sessions have been completed. Stay tuned tomorrow, as we'll have more from this special work session.
