City Council approves Sheridan Links on first reading

Members of Sheridan City Council unanimously approved the annexation of 57.48 acres into city limits at their regularly scheduled meeting Monday. The land is located at the intersection of West Fifth Street and Mydland Road, west of the fairgrounds.

The land is comprised of the old country club building and golf course. It is proposed to be developed as a Planned Unit Development with a section for large estate homes, a section for patio homes and a B-1 Business section that is currently owned by Grace Anglican Church, which meets in the old country club.

The annexation will require three readings for final approval, with the third reading to be held July 1. City Council also approved the conceptual plan and conceptual design report for the Sheridan Links PUD. Council will consider the subdivision final plat at the third reading of the annexation ordinance.

If approved, installation of city utilities is expected to begin in July, according to Ryan Christensen with Ridgepoint Consulting. Construction on homes can begin once utilities are installed.

There were no public comments regarding the Sheridan Links PUD.

In other business, city council approved an 8 Mill Property Tax for fiscal year 2014, which is the most allowed by state statute and is what the city typically approves, according to City Clerk Scott Badley.
