The Sheridan City Council approved the JCM Subdivision at their meeting Monday night. The property owners, Woodland Creek Estates, LLC requested to subdivide off one of the existing homes on the 11.3 acres of property to allow it to be sold separately. There were several nearby neighbors to the property that voiced their concerns to the Council about the subdivision.
City of Sheridan Planning Director Robert Briggs says that the original proposal is what brought about the adjacent landowners concerns.
While the Council approved the resolution allowing the property to be subdivided, Councilor Steve Brantz cast the lone vote against the proposal. He explains that there were a couple of reasons that lead to his “nay” vote.
The lot split creates a 0.72 acre lot for the existing home, and a 10.60 acre lot for the remaining property. The JCM Subdivision is part of the 27 acre Woodland Creek Estates annexation that the City approved in 2008.
The City Council also approved two ordinances on second reading; the first being an ordinance that would make it illegal to feed deer and other wild animals within City limits. The second is an ordinance banning the the substance known as “Spice”. Both ordinances will be up for third and final reading at the Council's next meeting on December 20th.
