The Wyoming Business Council's chief executive officer said the council's two days in Sheridan have gone great.

Shawn Reese spoke with Sheridan Media Thursday afternoon as the two-days of meetings were winding down.

On Wednesday, before the council convened its first session, council members toured Weatherby, Emit's property at the former Kmart site and downtown Sheridan.

Reese said all of those businesses are a result of a lot of planning, a very dedicated community and a strong partnership with Sheridan Community College.

Robert Briggs, who's the administrator for the Sheridan Economic and Education Development Authority – also known as SEEDA – said it's been wonderful having the business council in Sheridan this week.

Briggs said he found it good to see the business council moving forward with strategic planning efforts.

Susan Bigelow, vice president for development for the Northern Wyoming Community College District, said she was really impressed that the business council and others, including the University of Wyoming, were finding ways to work together to make the ENDOW plan happen.

She said she was also pleased to hear a discussion in Thursday morning's session on how to support the business incubator in Sheridan.
