At their meeting Thursday, the Sheridan County Planning and Zoning Commission gave preliminary approval to the Big Horn 'Y' Minor Subdivision in a vote of three-to-one. The owner, Y Properties, LLC, filed an application to subdivide 6.54 acres of land currently zoned for commercial use into four lots for future development.
The proposed four lot development would be on the northwest side of the “Y” Junction, between Big Horn Avenue and Coffeen Avenue, and is the only commercially zoned property in the area. The property is also adjoined by U.S. Highway 87 and State Highway 332.
At the meeting, a representative for the developer says they plan on subdividing based on a desire to give each lot a separate use for both current and future businesses.
Commissioner Audrey Brown was the lone dissenting vote and she said she was “not thrilled” at this property being subdivided into four pieces. Commissioner Jeremy Smith explains why he supports the subdivision.
The planning commission's preliminary approval of the Big Horn “Y” Minor Subdivision will be passed on next to the Sheridan County Commissioners.
