At Monday night's meeting, the Sheridan City Planning Commission unanimously recommended the Skyview West Planned Unit Development for approval by the city council. The commissioners originally tabled the item at their previous meeting, citing the need for more information and discussion.
The request before the planning commission was for the nearly 7 acre, 75-unit future rental housing project located northeast of Bighorn Avenue and Brundage Lane. Planning and Development Director for the City Robert Briggs, explains what will happen next.
But the commissioners modified the item on the agenda from a request to rezone the proposed development from an R-3 residential district to a PUD to what Briggs explains is an overlay.
As we previously reported, neighbors and concerned residents were vocal about their concerns regarding this development - and they came out in full force again Monday night.
Nel Dahmke, a property owner who lives adjacent to Skyview West, says she believes the proper administrative process is not being followed.
And when it comes to the issue of the modification of the original request, Dahmke says based on her conversation with someone from the Wyoming Association of Municipalities, a rezone cannot be approved by resolution.
Briggs says omitting the intent to request an overlay was simply a non-intentional clerical error for which he took responsibility.
Ultimately, the commissioners individually voiced their support for the development saying the project's applicant, Kim Love, did what was necessary and in some cases did more than he was required to do. The item will now head to the city council for its consideration, but the planning commission modified its motion to retain the ability for administrative review.
