SHERIDAN — The Sheridan Economic and Educational Development Authority Board approved the allocation of $5,000 to a new community housing study during its Tuesday meeting.
The study, which particularly focuses on housing needs in the municipalities of Sheridan, Dayton and Ranchester, will consider community demographics and current housing inventory to determine what types of housing are especially needed, according to Sheridan Community Development Director Wade Sanner.
The study will be a joint effort between the county, city of Sheridan and SEEDA, with each entity contributing dollars to the project. It will be the first joint housing study since 2006, according to SEEDA Administrator Robert Briggs and is expected to be completed by the end of the calendar year.
