City To Vacate Alleys In Old Central Middle School Property

When the two blocks that housed Central Middle School were originally platted, alleys and lot divisions were present. Loucks Street was vacated so the school could be built. However, the alleys never were. Holy Name Catholic church now holds the property as undeveloped land and would like the alley right-of-ways vacated to facilitate development. Sheridan City Planner Robert Briggs…

During a meeting last night, the Sheridan City Council approved the request. The vacation is a city ordinance so it will require two more readings before it becomes effective.

The City Council also tabled an agreement with Royal Elk Properties to extend city sewer to the Woodland Park Village Trailer Court. Their current system is failing and the property owners are willing to put in the infrastructure but wish the City to waive the plant investment fees. City Councilor Ryan Mulholland tells us why the matter was tabled.

Discussions included concerns about the capacity of the line proposed by the property owner. The property owner stressed the urgency in this project due to the condition of the current waste treatment system in the trailer park.
