A little over two months ago John Heyneman of the Sonoran Institute hosted a presentation featuring Joe Minnicozzi from Asheville, N.C. that focused on downtown revitalization.
The Sheridan City Council Wednesday had a chance to hear and see Minnicozzi's presentation through a webinar work session. Council President John Bigelow had a chance to attend the initial presentation in September and says that he commissioned to have the work session webinar with Minnicozzi.
Minnicozzi stated during his presentation that Downtown Sheridan would greatly benefit from better utilization of the areas above the stores in downtown, which Bigelow says was one of the things that was an eye opener for him.
Minnicozzi also said that Sheridan would be well served to consult with Billings on how they've handled their downtown situation and that while walking around Downtown Sheridan his first thought was that “something needs to be done with these upper stories”.
