After nearly two hours of a public hearing that included presentations from the engineer for the project, adjacent landowners for and against the project, and three different attorneys, the Sheridan City Council elected to table the Skyview West PUD overlay Monday night.
Council President John Heath, who called for the motion to table the item, explains his decision to do so.
The Developer of Skyview West, Kim Love, is proposing to build a 76-unit rental housing project on almost 7 acres northeast of Bighorn Avenue and Brundage Lane in south Sheridan.
The issue is one that has quite a bit of history to it, as when the property was purchased in 2000, the City's official zoning map classified the area as R-3 residential. This was an error in the City's mapping, as it was actually supposed to be zoned R-1 residential.
In 2011, the Fourth Judicial District Court of Sheridan County made a declaratory judgment that stated that the City must adhere to the zoning map that was used in 2000 and that the property shall remain R-3. The City Council will likely address the item again at their next regularly scheduled meeting Monday, April 15th.
