Historic District Business Committee struggling with participation levels

SHERIDAN — The Historic District Business Committee is struggling to recruit business owners for participation. The committee, formerly called the Retail Committee, has seen dwindling attendance at its meetings for several months.

“This committee is a great strategic partnership between the (Downtown Sheridan Association) and the chamber,” said Sheridan County Chamber of Commerce CEO Dixie Johnson. “We need to drum up attendance.”

DSA Executive Director Stacie Coe said many of the core members of the HDBC are members of other committees that cover redundant functions. She said some business owners may have been confused when the committee’s name changed.

The group has assembled a task force to meet Oct. 8 to rework the committee’s structure and guidelines for operation. At that time, the group will also share ideas about event plans for Men’s Night and the future of the Cash Mob initiative. All members of the public are invited and encouraged to attend.

At the committee’s meeting Thursday morning, they agreed the group will meet bimonthly, vice quarterly.

The next regularly scheduled meeting will be in November.
