Last October, the Sheridan City Council allocated $60,000 to the Downtown Development Campaign, which is an initiative through the Downtown Sheridan Association that offers incentives to building owners in the downtown area to make improvements to their buildings. The resolution passed by the Council stipulated that all building fees for renovation projects within the Historic District will be waived through the end of this year. Also, any and all landfill fees associated with renovation or demolition projects within the Historic District would also be waived through the end of this year.

DSA Board Member Matt Westkott gave an update to the Council at their meeting this week on how the campaign is coming along.

Westkott talked about the amount of funds that remain available.

Westkott expressed to the Council that even with an uncertain financial future on the horizon, he would like to see the City continue its support of economic incentive programs to keep downtown Sheridan vital.
