The Sheridan Economic and Educational Development Authority Joint Powers Board was formed in 2007 as a vehicle to leverage state and federal funding in regard to economic development and education.

SEEDA Administrator Robert Briggs says that SEEDA’s first big endeavor was the Early Education Center on Brundage Street in Sheridan that was formerly Hand-in-Hand, now First Light.

Briggs said that using property in the High-Tech Business Park in north Sheridan to attract businesses such as Vacutech and Weatherby falls under the umbrella of economic development.

Briggs said that just about all of the sites within the business park have now been developed. He said the next big undertaking by SEEDA will be the joint study with the City of Sheridan on attainable housing in Sheridan.
