The Sheridan Economic and Educational Development Authority is looking to expand on a target industries study that was conducted in 2007 by consultants Wadley-Donovan. City Planning Director and SEEDA Administrator Robert Briggs.
SEEDA will now apply for a $50,000 planning grant through the Wyoming Business Council to expand on the study that was done five years ago.
The Sheridan City Council Monday night approved a resolution authorizing submission of the grant application. The amount that SEEDA is requesting from the state is $50,000. The grant requires a cash match of approximately $16,000, which SEEDA has set aside in an economic development fund from the sale of lots in the Hi-Tech Business Park in north Sheridan.
