A Sheridan group clears a major hurdle in bringing new businesses and jobs to KOTA Territory.
The City of Sheridan is transferring 15 acres, ten in the Sheridan Commercial Park, to the Sheridan Economic and Education Development Authority (SEEDA). The plan is to set the land aside for new and expanding businesses.
SEEDA says this acquisition was years in the making and it may take a few more to bring in actual businesses. More sewer and road work is needed to accommodate additional facilities. But the group is excited about the types of employers expected to set up shop there.
"We'd like to see light manufacturing come in. We'd like to see service sector come in, maybe a rental truck company," said SEESA Chairman John Heath.
The necessary infrastructure work will resume once the weather warms up in the spring. The other five acres acquired are located on the northern part of town.
