The Center for a Vital Community will hold a Priority Setting Meeting Thursday, November 3rd, and invites the public as they begin to form an action plan from the themes gathered during last year's Community Follow-Up Assessment.
CVC worked with the Wyoming Rural Development Council Resource Team in September of 2010 to take public input on what people want most for Sheridan's future. The assessment was as a follow-up to the one conducted five years ago.
CVC Director Amy Albrecht explains.
Major themes people wanted to see improved or looked at included infrastructure, communication and sustainable community development. Albrecht explained "communication" was partly in the form of more integration between the City, County, school districts and nonprofits.
Sub-themes out of those include affordable housing; environment, including curbside recycling and open space; and economic diversity such as downtown revitalization and fostering job creation and attraction in Sheridan.
About ten listening sessions were held. Albrecht touches on some of the major themes that they heard in the re-assessment.
The assessment was, and still will be, open to anyone in the public wanting to participate.
From 5:30 to 7:30 pm Thursday at the Sheridan College Main Street Campus, the CVC and WRDC Resource Team will host the meeting intended to select the three most important themes and to suggest how to make them happen, via roundtable discussion.

The Sheridan Community Land Trust and Sheridan Housing Action Committee were both created as a result of input taken through the CVC/WRDC assessment that took place five years ago.
