Sheridan Thrive 2035 Community Review Report Released

The Wyoming Business Council (WBC) recently completed their Sheridan Community Review, entitled “Sheridan Thrive 2035”.  WBC Community Reviews use a community-based planning and assessment process to capture local inputs that, when put to action, will make Wyoming communities stronger, healthier, and more prosperous.  

The Sheridan review included a short written survey and several community feedback listening sessions.  945 survey responses were collected between July and November 2022, and ten listening sessions were held in four different communities in early November 2022.

Major themes that emerged from the focus group and survey responses included:

  • Intentional, Planned Growth
  • Economic Development
  • Education
  • Health
  • Amenities
  • Housing

Chamber of Commerce CEO and long-time Sheridan Economic Development Taskforce member Dixie Johnson said, “The Community Review has provided a unique window into what is important to Sheridan County residents.  It will be invaluable in helping to shape strategic economic development and community planning discussions in the coming months.”

The EDTF, made up of representatives from several different civic and economic development groups, will review the report and communicate out existing and planned actions to address some of the findings over the next several months.

“The EDTF is about coordinating resources and amplifying efforts.  The Community Review will help the EDTF focus and prioritize resources on projects that will have the most impact on what the community values,” said Scot Rendall, Director of IMPACT Sheridan.

An electronic copy of the report is available on the Sheridan County Chamber of Commerce at as well as the Sheridan County and the City of Sheridan websites.
